I am a fiction and non-fiction writer, poet, nature lover, transpersonal psychotherapist, and intuitive practitioner. My interests lie in the human psyche, transformation, nature, and Scotland and UK travel. I write about psychology, human experience, emotions, nature connection and soul relationship with the land.

Writing to me is an organic unfolding relationship between parts of myself, nature, and the world around me. From a childhood in Siberia and immersive life and experiences with nature, to being exposed to intense emotions of love and loss at a tender age; to being an English graduate in Oxford followed by working in the UK publishing industry for over twenty two years; to psychotherapy training, spiritual awakening and my first encounter with my Soul land, Scotland. I incorporate all elements of my life experience into my writing.

All my writing projects and ideas come to me either intuitively in line with what needs to be expressed, and spring directly from my experience with the world, life in general and others.

Writing has always been a part of my life and nature the biggest inspiration and teacher. I have always been interested in emotions and the absolute necessity for emotional expression in order to thrive. I started writing poetry in early teens, which later translated into lyrics for the songs I wrote with my friends. I am a classically trained pianist. I continued writing ever since into my adulthood; short stories and novellas, non-fiction projects and a full-length novel.


This chapbook was born out of my profound spiritual relationship with Scotland. It is  a love letter to the land. Poems flowed through and out of me in ready form. It has been a highly intuitive, aligned, emotional, personal, unique and passionate project for me.

NATURE THERAPY WALKS is a collaboration with Cortney Cameron, who found me through my blog and asked me to contribute to the project. It was a delight to produce contributions on sensory activities for this unique book.
