THE COSMOLOGY OF ASTROLOGY

Understanding your connection to the Sun, Moon and planets.

Cosmology FRONT cover RFS

Inspired by medieval-style cosmographies, this beautifully illustrated book offers readers an immersive and holistic introduction to the core concepts of astrology, revealing the symbolic connections and mysterious relationships that lie at the heart of our connection to the stars but also other esoteric systems such as magic, herbalism, and alchemy.

A new, yet ancient retelling of astrology that reclaims a view of a holistic, interconnected cosmos from the ancient Greeks, Mesopotamians, and Egyptians – how astrology was originally intended to be seen, before the worldview that came about as a result of the Industrial Revolution. It enables those new to astrology to reconnect with the wonder and magic of nature and the stars and offers a different perspective to those familiar with Western astrology.

A LIFE WITH ANIMALS

A photographic celebration of the Aspinall family and wildlife foundation.

Cover thumbnail

Written to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the famous Kent-based wild animal park and conservation charity founded by the eccentric but visionary John Aspinall and now being taken into the 21st century by his son, Damian.

On this project, I worked with key members of the foundation, as well as photographer Dave Rolfe to develop the concept, source and create the content, compiling most of the text myself. I also worked very closely with the graphic designer to devise the cover, structure, layout and flow of the book right through to the final product. A true labour of love.

Available at Waterstones, Amazon and in the TAF shop.

THE NEW ASTROLOGY OF TOWNS & CITIES

Published in association with the Urania Trust.

In 2013, I worked closely with the Urania Trust and Astrological Association to produce the second edition of a much-loved astrology reference classic by the late Harold Wigglesworth to mark the 40th anniversary of its original publication.

For those not directly involved in astrology, the book is a compendium of all the horoscopes of England’s major towns and cities, based on their incorporation dates. At the back is an in-depth notes section, filled with interesting facts and figures about the history of many of these places, which also makes for absorbing reading if you are at all interested in local history.

On this project, I wrote the introduction, checked and updated all the chart data, expanded the notes section and added in new entries that had been previously left out due to time restrictions or gaps in the available information. I also designed the cover, laid the whole book out and was responsible for its printing, a large part of the marketing and distribution. I also learnt a lot about e-book conversion, creating (through trial and error and a bit of insider guidance) two different versions for iTunes and Kindle. A real learning curve, but one I really enjoyed!

Available in both print and ebook format at Lulu, Amazon and iBooks.
