Pippa Grace cover Jan 2020

The February/ March edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.

I found Lucy to be inspirational and was even encouraged to start exploring my own creativity, despite having a deeply entrenched view of myself as “not creative”.
