She had a previous career as a freelance journalist and commissioning editor at national newspapers and magazines, including the Guardian and The Daily Express. Justina lives and writes in Staffordshire on board an electric, solar-powered narrowboat which dates from 1850 and – pulled by a horse – used to take coal from the Black Country to London. In her spare time she’s a fledgling singer-songwriter. She’s just recorded her first song – an offshoot from her commission from Weatherfronts 2016.
