The Introverts Adventure Club

Disabled adventuress with AuDHD, survivor, ex-academic, and a former police detective taking you on a healing journey and empowering you to live, not just exist. Writer and photographer giving unrepresented a voice.


My recent book, The Unexpected Journey: Adventure Against All Odds, will be out in 2025!

Are you ready?

Join Me!

After losing my health, house, loved one and employability, I realised I was doing it wrong. Being neurodivergent living with chronic conditions and physical disabilities, I tried to fit in, appease, and be equal. I was afraid to live the life I truly wanted. Now, having nothing to lose, I am no longer afraid.

Tolkien and adventure are at the heart of what I am doing, as they give me courage. I hope you will find help and hope here.

Now, I am rebuilding my life to be ND and disability friendly and sharing my journey to help you do the same through founding The Introverts Adventure Club and The Introvert - a newspaper representing people like us.

The Introvert: Your Fortnightly Post

The Introvert is an independent newspaper representing minorities.  

As an introvert with AuDHD and a physically disabled woman, I don't feel widely represented or even cared about by the media at large.

I decided to bring about change by creating this project.

The Introverts Adventure Club

League of Inclusive Explorers

The Club is an inclusive, introvert-friendly, safe space that unites against isolation and brings the healing power of adventure and nature to your door—and more!

It's free and you hold the helm!

As The Club's founder, I pledge campaigning to make nature and the outdoors inclusive and accessible to all.

What would you say for an expedition?
To see the faraway lands & learn about different cultures and places? Explore folklore and history? Study maps and books?


Upon my return, I will share my feedback & observations on Disable & Neurodiverse Travel.

Creating a directory and helpbook for Diverse-friendly travel!

“Go back?" he thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
