Born in Yorkshire, England and now resident in New Zealand. As a child I enjoyed writing poetry and short stories; however a busy life as a Mother then Grandmother put my writing on hold. Although I have had some poetry pieces published in compilation books. It is only the last few years that I have been writing in earnest again - mostly poetry and a few short stories. It is due to the encouragement of dear friends that I have decided to publish some of my work here on Smashwords. Some children’s poetry but mostly poetry that will reach out to others and touch their hearts. I hope you will enjoy reading my ebooks.
