Lionheart


A couple of months back I was asked to write a piece for Lionheart magazine. If you don't know it already, Lionheart is (in its own words) 'a magazine for those looking for something that reflects their personalities and preferences. Editorial that’s smart, funny, friendly and a little irreverent, together with beautiful design, illustrations and photography. You’ll find craft, fashion, art, interviews and features that are interesting, inspiring and hearty.'

It's been a while since I've written a piece like this and I felt a little rusty. But I loved thinking hard about what to say on the theme - adventure - and running words through my mind, mulling, letting it settle til I got it just right. Sending it off felt nerve-wracking, like I was setting something free, not sure it would fly.

The finished product is beautiful. Talented editor, Hels Martin, teamed my words up with an incredible illustration by Dan Bright, which really completes the piece. As you can see, the page is black - I love the drama of it (you'll have to buy a copy if you'd like to read the whole thing). I love to write, nothing else brings more joy and satisfaction. And the thrill of seeing my name in print never seems to fade... An adventure, indeed.
