East Finchley Connection: My co-author Louisa Green lives in East Finchley and I live in Dartmouth Park and use the services in East Finchley, especially UOE who have been fantastic in helping us get our book out through lockdown!

What do you do?
We have written, designed, illustrated and photographed a book for families ‘There’s Something About Wallace’, the lockdown love story of the two swans on Hampstead Heath who became famous through a piece Louisa wrote for the local press.

I am a designer, painter and writer exploring the relationship between our landscapes and ourselves. Louisa is an immunologist working at the Royal Free who, in her spare time, is a photographer and the volunteer who looks after the swans on the Heath.
