I have been a garden writer/freelance writer since 1999 when I started writing a gardening column for a local news publication on the Kapiti Coast, Wellington.  I was the garden writer for the Nelson Mail Home and Garden Page and have been writing a gardening column for the Tasman District Council's 'Mud Cakes and Roses' publication since April 2011.  

I love inspiring people through my writing including giving seasonal hints and ideas.  Here is a link to my Mud Cakes and Roses columns.  Just click on the year from 2011, then click on the issue (and so on for each year) that you'd like to see and scroll down through the publication until you see my column:
