Caitlin in dungarees

Hi! I’m Caitlin. I’m a planet-loving translator and copywriter based in Bristol, UK. My husband and I are currently embarking on an eco-retrofit of our Victorian terrace house. In my spare time, you can find me baking, going for walks or curled up on the sofa with a book.

Even as a kid, I loved nature, whether walking our golden retriever, looking for butterflies or playing in the sea during summer holidays in the south of France, which also sparked my love of the French language at an early age.

I’ve always loved writing and remember spending hours planning the books I’d like to write one day.

And being freelance has also allowed me to realise another childhood dream – to wear dungarees every day to work! If I’m honest, I don’t actually wear them every day. But the important thing is that I could.
