After varied employment experiences and when my four boys began to grow up I studied for a degree from London University. Afterwards I became a teacher. I have been writing for years alone and with various writing groups. I have had poems and stories published in magazines and Shore Women publications, and in 2019 printed Grass green Stockings, a collection of my poems. The novel based on my Grandmother’s life, that I have been writing over many years, is now almost finished.
