My Experience

Relevant experience has been mounting up in recent years. Since moving to the Herefordshire countryside in 2002, I have undertaken house-sitting assignments for many individuals, requiring the care of large, detatched properties and taking responsibility for a wide range of animals from poultrydogs, cats, and horses. Several years living on a farm have means I am also familiar and comfortable with most livestock issues. My landlady and employer of several years has property abroad, meaning I have repeatedly been left in sole charge of her house & business premises, (and her various animals) often for extended periods. In the last two years I have undertaken assignments in Wales, London, Cambridgeshire and am currently in Suffolk. All previous assignments have been completed without exception, to the home-owners satisfaction, and interested parties are most welcome to contact these referees independently.

Other Information

I'm currently working on my second book, for publication in spring 2014, and am looking for a degree of solitudepreferably ruralto do the work I'm far too good at avoiding while at home. Animals are by far the best company for writers, as people are too good at creating distractions in the evening,which is when I work best. For this reason, extended house-sits are my ideal, although shorter periods of a few weeks can be considered.
