I’m Carlie, a country housewife living in Oxfordshire with my husbands and two teenage daughters. We have dogs and chickens and a darling pony, called Solo.
Whilst I aspire to complete and fabulous country-housewifery, real life gets in the way.
I work as a Girl Friday for lots of lovely people (cooking, cleaning and dog-walking) and also with my husband, in our family stove-fitting business (SJL Services).
I love to write. I have written for various magazines and websites, specialising in nature and travel writing with the odd bit on animal and child-wrangling thrown in.
I’m currently looking for representation for my #SSF novel, ‘The Badly Born’, which was longlisted for the #BNAKids 2017, and again in 2018. It’s about the complicit exploitation of the poor and disenfranchised by the ruling class.
My work-in-progress is a Gothic saga, with an impossible love story at its heart.
I’m a @CBCreative Alumni (Christopher Wakling, 2017).
