Debra Wattes


I'm not great at talking about myself. But here goes. I grew up in Wellington NZ and went to Ridgeway School from 1970 to 1977, then SWIS, then WGC. I've spent a lot of my life travelling around NZ. I've lived in most main centers, bar Christchurch. I've also traveled to Bali, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, London, Spain and Rarotonga. I'd still love to visit Egypt and the USA. I've always been creative. I know how to Knit, Sew, Sing, Decorate, Renovate and Write. So I'm definitively an artsy soul. I write short stories, poetry and currently working on my first Novel. I've written and co-edited many large documents in my life during my career in administration. Starting as a basic clerk and finishing my career as an Admin Manager. Along with a creative mind I also have a very analytical and organised mind, which really helps with writing large documents, like novels. I have a husband, two sons- both married and doing well and a lovely black Labrador who is now 11 y-o. I have a physical disability/challenge which limits my ability to work in a regular job. So, I am trying my best to make a new career as a writer and hope that one day I'll sell a best seller and be able to support myself, which would be so empowering. Any help you can offer by sharing my work, is extremely appreciated. Thank you for visiting and reading my work.
