I like to write. I write about things I see, things that happen, things that happened to me. I have had a happy life, and am still enjoying it, with my wonderful husband, a talented photographer. My life sounds boring, doesn't it!
I grew up on a farm, a tobacco farm, shock, horror, and I am not a world traveller, except in my mind. I am unfashionably lacking in ambition, but I have lots of interests that I pursue, around the home. I do portraits of people with interesting faces.
At sixty, I live in a smallish city in New Zealand and work part time.

This is a collection of short stories, some true, often reflecting aspects of my early upbringing in rural Nelson, New Zealand. The rest are from my imaginings - 'out of my mind'. There are ten stories in this book and a further ten in the second, 'Further Out'. A third book isn't 'Far Out'.
