I’m a professional writer and journalist.
I began my career working as a news reporter covering hard news for a press agency. I then went freelance as a news journalist for a number of years, before turning to feature writing. I wrote my first book in 2010 and have since written a couple more.
I continue to write quite a lot about mental health and wellbeing, including regular news and features on the subject for Men’s Fitness magazine.
I write reviews, particularly of fusion music. Mainly I write these for Songlines Magazine, but other places too.
I write for other people too, if you’re interested in hiring me to write for you, get in touch.
I also write the occasional academic essay or paper, these tend to be on theology or the interplay of social science, politics, and theology.
During the first weeks of the UK Corona Virus lockdown I developed a project creating liturgies for the locked down – these are Liturgies in a Dangerous Time.
I have a blog on which I now mainly publish book reviews.
For a while I published a monthly essay, around 2000 – 3000 words on some random serious subject I’d been thinking about. I called this my ‘longform’ project.
