My Blog

I love to write and have authored young adult and young children's fiction. I aspire to be a memoirist. On my blog I share thoughts on my life as a writer, a parent, an older person, a creative. In my posts on life's lessons, I share the challenges and wins I've experienced. I've almost got over my embarrassment at  what seems to be many, many stupid choices and decisions I've made - and now I celebrate them for the growth and learning opportunities that have come as a result. The feel and sound of words are delicious to me. I write what I think is meaningful. And I share in the hope that my words will lighten your own life's journey. 

Me, Briefly

I've been a teenage mother, an Avon lady, a volunteer, a mum of seven, a widow, a divorcee, a mature student, a town planner, a book author and publisher.


Able to hold the broad view while discussing the smallest details, introvert though appearing to others as an extrovert, deep thinker, love to learn, love adventures.


Born in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, I live in New Zealand. 

Hop on over to my Blog posts and dive in. I'd love it if you share your own thoughts with me.
