The Steedmans


Our Authors

David Steedman


I’ve been a writer since I could pick up a pen. A serial hobbyist, I can never resist seeing a piece of art, or someone create something without wanting to have a go myself. Alongside writing, my interests have grown to include drawing, painting, playing guitar, photography and baking. When I get the time I love watching TV, films, sport and playing various (more stationary) sports: snooker and golf being my favourites.

I post mainly about Lifestyle, Books and Writing though I might occasionally branch into Opinion.


Charlotte Steedman


I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t reading and writing for the love of it. Having just finished studying a Creative Writing degree, I’m exploring my writing abilities in the form of YA novels and blogs.  When I’m not writing, I can be found with my nose in a book, trying to master the art of photography or attempting to bake – and usually failing.

I post about Lifestyle, BooksWriting, Weddings and Pregnancy.


The Casual Columnist is a varied and up to date home for us to journal and tell the world about our adventures as a couple, best friends and soon to be newlyweds. We usually post 4 times a week apart from when news breaks, aliens invade or we’re swept off our feet by a particularly delicious looking cake.

Don’t leave us unattended at a buffet.
