My name is Abi Shepherd. After being made redundant in November 2016, I decided that it was time to follow my own path. I started a course in Freelance Journalism and am looking to start working as a freelance journalist as soon as the course is finished (another 2 weeks at time of writing). You can read more on my About Me page.

I will be shadowing a journalist at a local newspaper in March which I hope will give me a little more experience.

Writing has always been my passion so I’ve decided that now is the time to follow that dream. At least I will be able to say I tried!

I have written extensively on divorce and separation, so this is one of my main areas of expertise. I also write about mental health, family & parenting, work (I worked in admin for 20 years), care work (something I’m doing at the moment to earn enough money to pay the bills). Due to moving from a well-paid job in admin to freelance and care work, I have also become a super-budgeter. I will be writing more about this.

As I get published, I will list my articles here, but you can search my blog for examples of my writing.

You can contact me at, by telephone at 07545-808845 or comment on my blog. I will always reply.
