Welcome

Hello everyone! On my blog you can find articles about folklore, writing and fairy tales. Visit the about section if you would like to know more about me and my work or scroll down for trailers and my latest blog posts. Thank you for visiting!

It has been a huge honour and an amazing experience to work together with The Alternative Stories and Fake Realties Podcast on several projects.

In Scottish folklore a selkie is a being that can shapeshift from seal to human. My audiodrama Selkie is based on this and tells the story of a selkie who is forced to live her life on land and cannot return to the sea. You can view the trailer below and listen to the episode here.

‘The Fairy Tree’ tells the story of a girl who is transformed into a tree. It is part of an anthology about forests and woodlands and you can listen to the piece here.

Naart Stuyck is a short piece of fiction based on Flemish folklore about a haunted bakery and part of the Ghostlore Audio Fiction Anthology. Listen here.

The Folklore of Animals, Creatures, Beasts and Familiars. Listen to this episode here.

Read my short story ‘Women’s March on Versailles’ in The Copperfield Review.

BookWorm Saturday is happy to announce that we are teaming up with our Saturday buddy Superstition Saturday to embark on a secret project together outside of Twitter.

Both teams at Superstition Saturday and BookWorm Saturday are really excited to tell you more about our upcoming project together soon, and we hope that you are going to love it too.
