First book published was called 'A Pathway through the Seasons'. It is an anthology based on the turning of the year with all its associated customs, history and folklore. Produced all colour and black/white illustrations. Also song lyric writer, collaborating with husband Sussex fiddle player Garry Blakeley (Feast of Fiddles) . They created ‘The Ceremony of May’ and 'The Wheel of the Year'. I am writing and illustrating a new book on English history, legend and folklore called 'Echoes of England' to be published in 2014/15.
