About Natalie


I’m a freelance film writer based in Birmingham, UK. I have over six years experience reviewing films for local newspapers both online and in print. My writing has been syndicated across JPI Media websites in the midlands including the Mansfield and Ashfield Chad, the Hucknall Dispatch and the Derbyshire Times.

My writing has appeared in Little White Lies, Audiences Everywhere, Filmotomy and Gorilla Film Online. I have also provided events coverage of the London Film Festival, Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival, Derby Film Fest and Sheffield Doc Fest.

My own website, writerlovesmovies.com, explores the relationship between cinema and the novel. I have contributed to a wide variety of sites as part of the movie blogging community and my content has been featured in the digital magazine 'The Daily Lamb' which draws its daily content from over 1,400+ member blogs.

I am currently writing a book about visual storytelling.
