Welcome!


Welcome to my website!  My name is Jackie Kirkham (she/her), and this site is where I will talk about my writing and my nature-related adventures.

I write broadly in the genre of nature/place/environment (narrative non-fiction), and my first book, “The Calm Place”, was published in June 2023. This link takes you to all the places where it can be bought online, or if you would like to order it from your library or local independent bookshop instead, I would be delighted! (if you do this, please tell them that it is available from the Ingram catalogue). And if you enjoy the book, please consider leaving a review of it on your online book retailer of choice.

I live in beautiful Scotland, so there is plenty of nature and landscape for me to enjoy!  My day job is research nursing, which satisfies my inner nerd, but reading and writing, inspired by the natural life around me, is how I relax.  I look forward to sharing my writing and inspiration with you.
