I have been writing and taking photographs for many years in one format or another. Whether it be compiling features and interviews for books, fanzines and websites, supplying photos for books and CD artwork or submitting content to magazines.
I’ve even compiled track listings for a record label and have taken part in discussions for new product lines and brand promotion with Dr Martens, and introduced them to new advertising partnerships.
I am currently writing for a US health website as well as writing some guest posts for other bloggers.
Over the years I have had many reviews, features, interviews, and photos published in/on CDs, books, magazines and websites including:
Dr Martens: A History of Rebellious Self-Expression
Western Star Recording Company: The First Decade
Hell’s Bent on Rockin: A History of Psychobilly
Tribe Made in Britain: A Personal History of British Subculture
Cherry Red Psychobilly Collectors Series
Western Star and Trophy Record Labels

BLOGS & WEBSITES
I’ve been interviewed by several bloggers, featured in group collaborations and have written some guest posts including:
Diary of a Detour – Road Trip USA Packing Tips
If I find something that I’ve really enjoyed whether it be a book, cd, hotel, or gadget then I like to share the love with a review. As well as writing reviews on my blog I publish on sites such as TripAdvisor, Booking.com, NetGalley, etc, and I have been members of the following review panels in the past:
and several smaller panels such as TriyIt, TryBe, RB ReviewBox, BzzAgent, Home Senses, Home Tester Club, AMZ.
I have participated in occasional Blog Tours too with authors, publishers and blog tour organisers.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
In addition to Tea and Cake for the Soul, I have created and continue to run a music related blog and social media pages for several bands where I have published interviews, reviews and biographies as well as maintaining live gig listings.
