Here’s an overview of some major writing projects I’ve worked on in the last few years.
I’m often surprised that writing occupies a large part of my life. I never had any ambition to be a writer, and it all feels a bit accidental. But writing has given me lots of opportunities, and these projects are some of them.
When I look at this list, I realise how much of my writing work has been collaborative. Writing is usually thought of as a solitary activity, but for me a great deal of it isn’t.
