New Nature is an online magazine aimed at people under thirty who care about wildlife and the countryside. This is exactly the audience I would most like to connect with and be read by (although I’m delighted to be read by everyone) but I do place all my hope in what follows me. Many thanks to Ben Eagle for his great review which you can read here
Great night at Waterstones in Canterbury on Wednesday. Many thanks to Martin for a great interview and all the staff who looked after me. Thanks also to everyone who came and to those who bought a book.
Many thanks to Countryfile magazine for picking On the Marshes as one of their great summer reads. Read the review here
This month I am interviewed by Countryside Voice, the magazine for CPRE. Sorry about the fuzzy screenshot, we all know I am hopeless with technology.
Better late than never. Here are a few photos of Ros Coward and I at Wealden Literary Festival, where we were delighted to get to do our double act in the Garden Tent.
Another interesting review of my book, On the Marshes. I love the fact that it’s inspiring people to want to visit the area and interesting to see which parts of the book they choose to talk about. This reviewer enjoys the scene in which I get trapped on an island in October with a rising tide and have to be rescued by a lifeboat. I was a little preoccupied to take a picture at that moment so here is a shot of the river from Darnet Island on a quieter day.
After a 14 hour stint of bird surveying on Sheppey it was nice to come home this evening and read this great review of my book by the fabulous Caught by the River. It is interesting how my walk and encounters are seen by someone else and I am delighted the reviewer wants to trace my footsteps.
