About me

My day job: I look after the web content and social media for a small company in the DIY/property & construction sector.

I’m half-decent at writing and improving other people’s prose (got an MA in a fairly niche branch of Linguistics, and have worked as a proofreader, content writer and in internal comms), so if you need something written or edited, do feel free to get in touch: kirstenparnell1603@gmail.com

I write in other places when I’m not at work:

A version of my piece on my excellent grandmother appeared here

On Weinstein and ‘not all men’

On the utter magic of live music

On Brexit

On weddings

On quitting

On marriage

I have a boyfriend who is referred to as Drummer Boy, or DB, because that’s what he does.

We live in Hove with our Springer spaniel pup Noodle, with whom we are besotted, to an embarrassing degree.


My favourite things: bookshops, coffee, dogs, cheese, live music, baking, feminism, eyeliner, stripes, tulips, observational comedy, hats, Twitter.

Least-favourite things: rain, slugs, snails and slimy creatures, mushrooms and green tea.
