Elizabeth is a deaf writer, activist, and feminist living in London with her husband Daniel and their cat Coco, short for Chocolat. She has been blogging for thirteen years, and an arts and culture journalist since 2011.

She writes non-fiction essay collections, poetry, and fiction. Her love of fiction and non-fiction has inspired her to write the stories that are missing. She enjoys writing about the mysterious, the weird and the unexplained.

A self-described bookish geek, foodie, and film fan, she loves nothing more than curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea, book or film and a cat or two for company.

Reading List #3: Books, Creativity, and Food

Today something has shifted a little. Though Im missing my sister, friends, and other family, I also made a bit of a loose to-do list last night that has given me a bit of structure to the day. My sleep has been all over the place, so Im not putting too much pressure on myself to have a perfect structure, but Im also trying to give shape to each day. My reading the past week has reflected my inter

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

Brilliant, incisive, hopeful book. So many ‘click’ moments for me. I loved her discussions of feminism and class too, it clarified intersectionality further for me, a white (deaf) feminist! Everyone should read it.
Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge
"A kick-ass book with one of the best designed covers ever. Contains deep research, upsetting facts, piercing analysis, personal anecdotes, boat-rocking energy and a passionate argument for equality. I particularly loved that this was written with a U" Read more of this review »

“We need thinkers in this world of ours, just as we need dreamers, pragmatists, doers, and people who are kind and loving. So many things around us are the result of people who invented, thought hard about what would make life better, thought about what democracy looks like, thought about how we want to live.”
Elizabeth A. Ward, Fragments: Essays and Philosophies

“We define ourselves in different ways, according to culture, family, peer group, and world-view. By what we enjoy doing, and what we don’t enjoy doing. By what we’ve experienced, and what we would like to experience. It all comes together to form the basis of ‘us’. Losing your compass, your passion, meaning, or purpose—could lead towards pain or towards discovery.”
Elizabeth A. Ward, Fragments: Essays and Philosophies

“Imperfection is beautiful and a necessary aspect of human nature. Perfection is impossible. What should we strive towards instead? A greater understanding of and the growth of ourselves and the people around us is rooted in accepting imperfection, even celebrating it.”
Elizabeth A. Ward, Fragments: Essays and Philosophies

“The beginning is always today.”
Mary Wollstonecraft

“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”
William Blake

“Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.”
Neil Gaiman, Dream Country

“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
Mortimer J. Adler

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
