“River Ganseys” 2nd edition, (heavily revised, new publisher) for pre-order, some time soon! (Winter, 2021). Will be on sale Spring 2022.

I’ve published in many places, so prolific I can’t list them all here. I write regularly for “The Knitter” magazine, and also contribute to the US magazines “Ply”, “PieceWork” and “Spin-Off”. As well as doing some journalism (Yorkshire Bylines) where I write about Yorkshire History and also medical history. Here are just a few of the magazines I’ve written for in the past couple of years.
