Born in the UK and emigrated to Perth Australia with my husband and two daughters. I am a retired Author and Artist who was inspired to write children’s stories when my first grand daughter was born. I wrote 30 stories and had been accepted by a publisher that unfortunately went bankrupt in 1995. My husband creates my book covers and has illustrated some of my children's stories. I self-published, finally putting them and my latest stories, for all age groups FREE to read online or download worldwide. I have written 54 FREE books for eBook outlets. This is my hobby and not for profit.
