Josie George is a writer and artist living in the West Midlands. She is the author of the highly acclaimed A Still Life, a memoir about life as a chronically ill mother with a big heart and wide-open eyes. She's also a regular columnist for The Guardian Country Diary sharing a different view of nature from her urban neighbourhood, often from her mobility scooter. Josie spends her days finding doorways into remarkable places right where she is (even if that's often in bed). Josie believes the ordinary world around us has something to say and she's determined to listen.
