I have been writing for quite a few years - short stories; poetry, and two novels, one of which was published in Australia in paperback in 2007. Owing to unforeseen problems, the book is no longer available.
I have also been published in magazines, although my style of writing - usually, but not always, black comedy and horror, is not for women's mainstream magazines.
I also write poetry, preferring rhymes rather than free verse. And rhymes, as opposed to 'proper' poetry, is something I love to write, especially simple, silly verses, many of which are suitable for young children.
I write because I enjoy creating something out of what might be an acorn of just a few words, or a phrase that came to me, or overheard in a conversation.
