Having become a writer as a side line when the masses read newspapers and it took days to find out the latest news, Emma has written on a huge variety of subjects, but always returned to her love of living a sustainable life. Her writing was a way to be able to build herself a cob home, off the gird and Armageddon ready, but let’s hope Armageddon is delayed for a while – it isn’tRead More
Having become a writer as a side line when the masses read newspapers and it took days to find out the latest news, Emma has written on a huge variety of subjects, but always returned to her love of living a sustainable life. Her writing was a way to be able to build herself a cob home, off the gird and Armageddon ready, but let’s hope Armageddon is delayed for a while – it isn’t even started yet…
Emma has been interested in alternative, natural and organic solutions to everyday situations since she was a young mother with three small children. Two of her children being violently allergic to penicillin was a wake-up call that maybe modern answers to daily problems weren`t actually the best solutions, and armed with a, `there has to be something better than this?’ attitude she scoured the library (yes, there was civilization in the pre-Google era) and greened up her life – and dragged with it, the life of her husband and children.
With her children off to college, and her copious essential oil, organic herb and sustainable furniture mysteriously disappearing with them, she endeavors to perfect her organic basil, orange peel and chia seed soufflé (don’t ask her patient husband how many failures he’s had to try …) and help others to understand that being green isn’t about heroic acts of massive organic proportions, it’s about striving to be a little greener every day. With her philosophy that practising green is a healthy, exhilarating way to live – being creative is a way of life, and seeing things as they can be, rather then they are, opens up a whole new world. As she always reminds us – life is for living, so make it count!
