About Me

About me

Hello and thank you for stopping by to learn a bit more about me.

My name is Samantha and I live in the beautiful county of Yorkshire in the north of England where I spend my time researching, writing, blogging and teaching.

I have worked as a Civil Servant, museum guide, clerk in a law office, university administrator and events manager, and using words to craft interesting, relevant and exciting ways to communicate has always been the best part of every one of them.

So, after twenty years of the traditional office job, I took the plunge and founded Green Hare so that I could make a career out of doing something that I love.

How I can help you?

I can help you to draft content that will tell your story and use my experience to show your clients what you really stand for.

If you want to get your vision over to your customers, but English isn’t your first language, I can help you craft copy that will make your voice heard.

I can write and design information brochures, drawing on my years of experience.

My articles tend to focus on history. Medieval is my specialism, but I have found some really interesting subjects recently, including Robert Todd Lincoln (son of President Lincoln) who I had never heard of before stumbling across his story whilst researching the Titanic (and no, he wasn’t even on it!). 

People often think that I am odd when I tell them that sharks are my favourite animals, but I have put that passion into writing about their conservation, hoping to play a small part in stopping the decline in their numbers.

Some odd facts about me

  • I once asked a famous actor if he liked Black Pudding
  • My favourite book is North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • I collect old telephones
  • Snooker is my favourite sport
  • I once hid from a member of the royal family
  • I love all things Star Wars (yes, even Jar Jar Binks)
  • One of my earliest memories is of writing the script of a Christmas play (although it was more murder mystery than festive cheer)
  • I love playing board games
  • I like watching true crime documentaries (after which I do some research of my own and scare myself to death)
