I have always written in some form or other – be it an attempted novel at school or pages in my beloved journal regularly. My first foray into writing professionally came when an editorial job turned into a writing one. I loved it and was definitely bitten by the bug! After a brief gap while I had my first child, I have been writing for various publications ever since, including books, magazines, websites and Bible study guides:
Walking in the Truth: John 1,2,3, CWR, published Nov 2017.
Taking off the mask: daring to be the person God created you to be, Authentic, published Nov 2017.
Insight into Burnout (co-authored with Chris Ledger), CWR, 2017.
Insight into Self-Acceptance (co-authored with Chris Ledger), CWR, 2016.
David: A Man After God’s Own Heart, CWR, 2015.
Insight into Managing Conflict (co-authored with Chris Ledger), CWR, 2014.
Prayer and Jesus (two titles in the BRF Foundations21 series), 2014.
Taking Your Spiritual Pulse, John Hunt Publishing, 2003.
I write regularly for a range of magazines including: idea, Families First, Woman Alive, Liberti, Graceful Chic and Inspire. I am currently freelance news and features journalist for Premier Christianity magazine.
Bible study notes:
I am regularly commissioned by CWR and BRF to write for various publications including Inspiring Women Every Day, Quiet Spaces and Day by Day with God. Subjects covered have included: encouragement, hope, holiness, having a lifestyle of worship, lesser-known ladies of the Bible.
