So long, Farm Girl

Dear friends, 
I'm officially closing down my beloved blog that I've had for 10 years. I'll leave it up for nostalgic reasons, but there will be no more posts or links forthcoming after this one. But don't fret, I haven't left the internet!
You can find me over on Substack at Wildly Alive, where I'm sending letters approximately 1-2 a month. 
I'm also working on my next book, my first work of women's fiction, and I keep my website updated with any new writing I'm doing. 
It has been a pleasure and an honour finding my writing wings in this space. I wouldn't be where I am today without it. 

All my love,

Second Spring

Perimenopause has arrived - and I'm here to tell you all the bloody details. Second Spring is one such story, and just to give you an idea of what it's about: I wanted to call it "Sometimes you bleed like a stuck pig", but the editors of Forty Fifty politely said "hell, no" and suggested the much better title Second Spring. If you like true crime or horror stories you gonna love this one!

Breaking through the glass

I wrote a piece for the Sober Book Club about how I had built a thick wall of glass around myself while drinking that muted the colours, sounds, and smells of life. I saw life unfold but the glass wall prevented me from experiencing it fully and continuously shrank my world.  

Ever since I quit life has been expanding, and it keeps getting bigger, better and more exciting!
