Leonie Martin - Writer and Creative Practitioner

Leonie is the author of: Multiple Sclerosis – the Essential Guide (Need2know, 2010) and Volunteering – the Essential Guide (Need2know, 2011). Both books are a combination of first-hand experience and useful information.

Leonie’s articles, short stories and poetry have been published in local and national media. She is a feature writer for Derbyshire-based Reflections magazine and a regular guest on local BBC Radio where she speaks about various themes that inform her writing.

Her latest commission is of significant local interest: 150 Years of St Mary’s Catholic High School, Chesterfield is a commemorative book to mark this successful school’s celebration in 2015.
