Welcome to new subscribers
A short announcement
Thanks to discussions and links over at HollyMathNerd’s place and a couple of popular posts, quite a lot of you have made your way over here.
You’ll find my substack is less frequent than Holly’s, mainly because I’m an established writer in the dreaded “MSM” and publish there as a rule. I’ll make sure to draw attention to my recent publications from time-to-time in here, because people can’t be expected to subscribe to a whole stack of newspapers and magazines on the strength of a single author, and social media is a bit hit and miss when it comes to promoting articles.
Professionally, I’m a lawyer as well as a writer so if I disappear for long periods it’s because I’m consulting.
I don’t plan to charge for this; realistically, I’d have to lose all my other writing gigs and legal consulting work for that to happen.
I’ll also host periodic guest posts from writers I consider interesting.
I’ve been a professional writer in a variety of outlets since 1993, and in various forms of legal practice since 2005. I’ve written three novels, hundreds of thousands of words of legal and political commentary, and have been Senior Writer at Law & Liberty since January 2021. I have won or been shortlisted for a number of literary awards, initially in Australia and then elsewhere. I now live in the UK, in an area often described as the “Home Counties” or “Tory Shires”.
I’m still on the demon bird app; you can find me @_HelenDale (yes, I’m a blue tick; don’t judge).
