Welcome My name is Kate Priestman and I’m a freelance writer based in the UK. I specialise in nature and ecology, with a general interest in the countryside and rural life. In addition to writing, I am also a proofreader/proof-editor. I began my career as a professional ecologist, which I pursued for over sixteen years, setting up my own business in 2012. This enabled me to bring my other passions of writing and art to the fore. I am co-founder, writer and editor of Inside Ecology magazine – a leading online magazine for ecologists, conservationists and wildlife professionals. I have written two ecology-based children’s books to date and I am currently editing my third book. I am also in the process of researching subject matter for an in-progress novel. In addition to books, I write both short stories and articles, tailored for a variety of publications. I also ghostwrite for clients (fiction and non-fiction – books and articles).
