I’m a journalist and author, currently living in England. My first book, Foxes Unearthed: A Story of Love & Loathing in Modern Britain, was published by Elliott & Thompson in 2016. It was long-listed for the Wainwright Prize and won the Society of Authors' Roger Deakin Award. My second book, Losing Eden: Why Our Minds Need The Wild will be published in February 2020 by Penguin Press. I was very grateful to receive a Society of Authors’ K Blundell Trust Award while the work was in progress. I write features about science, health, wildlife and the environment for a variety of publications, including BBC Earth, BBC Wildlife, the Guardian, the Sunday Times, and the Daily Telegraph, though I am currently on maternity leave. I also write a weekly culture column called State Of The Arts for The Independent, review books, and haphazardly update my Wildlife Daily Tumblr. Before going freelance in 2015, I worked at NME and The Daily Telegraph. I am represented by Jessica Woollard at David Higham Associates.
