THIS IS ME

Author Poet Blogger

Since taking the plunge into the world of writing full time I have published five books and developed my blog commenting upon life as I see it. My writing has been featured on YouTube and radio interviews, as well as in magazine articles and I am thrilled that my work continues to spark conversation and connection. Whether it be a blog piece, poem or story, writing is giving me opportunities to talk about challenging subjects: midlife, menopause, mental health and dementia.

I have written in one way or another from an early age and have always loved the power of the written word. My first love was poetry and that remains at the core of who I am as a writer.  Alongside this, I have written many scripts over the years. with my latest pantomime 'Tales of the Magic Lamp' due to be performed by my local community drama group - Acting Up.
I am now finding my voice as a writer through other genres, with both my memoir and historical fiction receiving positive reviews. I am excited to see where my writing will take me next.

Beyond my writing, I devote my energies to my family: husband, two grown-up children and our cockapoo, called Gizmo. Dog walks, coffee shop visits, choreographing dance routines for the drama group and baking when the mood takes me - all these things fill the time in-between finding the words to put on the page.
