My name is Kate Priestman and I’m a freelance writer and proof-editor, based in the UK. I specialise in nature and ecology, with a general interest in the countryside and the outdoors.

A career as a professional ecologist, has provided me with a strong knowledge-base for writing about the subjects I am passionate about.

I am co-founder, writer and editor of Inside Ecology magazine – a leading online magazine for ecologists, conservationists and wildlife professionals.

When I am not writing or proof-editing, I work as a wildlife and pet portrait artist.
