I'm a lifestyle and countryside author known for my Fennel's Journal books, Contented Countryman podcast, Fennel on Friday weekly blog, and Fennel's Priory website.

I write about nature connection, wildlife, rural living, outdoors, escapism, adventure, traditionalism, one's sense of self, and how time spent in quiet natural places helps us to balance the pressures of modern life.

My motto is 'Stop – Unplug – Escape – Enjoy'.
