What's New

Avenues - So sad to have written my final feature for outgoing Avenues editor Yvonne Martin. It has been fabulous working with her as a freelancer over the past decade and she will be deeply missed by many - I personally wish her well. I know Yvonne has some exciting new adventures in store! Stuff has sold the magazine to a new owner so the magazine is now entering a new phase. For the final edition of the magazine with Yvonne I contributed a feature on Riccarton House (A Grand Old Lady) and also caught up with triathlete Andrea Hewitt (2020 Vision).

Latitude - April/May 2018. It was great to meet visual artist Bridget Allen for this edition and to discover the wonderful work she has been doing at a pop-up printmaking studio at Awaroa/Godley Head, (Printmaking at Godley Head). I also contributed a feature on Mini Ha Ha Horse Haven in Fernside, where Jenny Heperi is working so hard to raise awareness on proper equine care, (Standing Tall for the Minis). As usual, photographer Lucy Hunter-Weston was a pleasure to work with - her images are always do good.

I was delighted to contribute editorial recently to the University of Canterbury's publication, Chronicle, Spring 2017/Summer 2018 edition. It's a nice newsy read and is available online at the following link: http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/media/documents/chronicle/chronicle_no54_2017.pdf

I also write for Waterford Press and regularly contribute to their publications.

Keep the ideas coming; I do love hearing from local people with great suggestions for stories.

More coming soon!
