Meet the Author
I am a writer and artist, widely published worldwide. I have an honours degree in psychology and have written many books about Freud, Jung and dreams. I also enjoy writing fiction for children. For a full list of my publications please visit my Amazon author page.
I was was born in Cumbria, UK, at the edge of the Lake District, and have lived there most of my life. The long-inhabited, rural landscape has given me an interest in the folklore and culture of my British ancestors, which is reflected in my writing. This huge megalithic stone, with its wise and ancient face, is one of a pair not far from where I live, called The Portals of Eden.
I love nature and walk often by the sea, in woods and by the shores of the lakes. My walks inspire both my art and my writing so I take notebook and sketching things with me.This picture shows a still snowy day in December by the shores of Derwentwater.
My deep love of nature and fascination with dreams have taught me much about natural magic and the doors between the `real world’ and the psychic world. I enjoy working in my garden, following the great wheel of seasons and talking to the animals and plants who live there. I have loved trees since I was a child and spend a lot of time sitting under them and drawing them.
