My interest in writing poetry and short stories started in the fab fifties and continues today. Sixty-six years young, I have been writing seriously for around three years.


I have wide and varied interests and have undertaken courses in a variety of areas such as: Self Development Seminars, Child Psychology, counselling.  1987 saw me graduate as an instructor in Kinesiology, followed by Aromatherapy Massage, Reiki II and Spiritual Healing.  I have run my own practice for over fifteen years. Almost concurrently, my husband and I owned and managed a commercial photographic studio for twenty years.


A number of years ago, I realized that I was reading more and was noticing the different styles and expressions of ideas authors were using, rather than being primarily interested in the story alone, as was previously the case. After a trip to Poland four years ago, a journalist friend convinced me that I should take my writing more seriously so decided to fictionalise my biography.

I have worked hard to get my skills to a publishable standard, and this was realised when my poem Your Life gained the Editor's Choice Award, January 2003 in a competition and was published in the Pearls of the Past anthology - a Jeffrey Franz Publication.
As is the case with many writers, I find myself
lying awake at night with unstifled ideas filling my mind, and strive to utilise them whenever possible. I strongly believe that fiction comes from life, and tap my unlimited flow to its fullest.
If  I had to choose prose over poetry or vice versa, I would find it difficult. I love both. I simply love to write.
