I am an Australian living in Canada married to the love of my life. An internet romance thatbecame the great love of my life.

    

A retired registered nurse I now have the time for writing the poems and stories I always longed to write. Reading, writing, the theatre and any one in trouble have always been my main interests in life.

My play "After the Fair" won second prize in an international play competition several years ago. Now I write mainly for the internet; poems stories and Rhymes. I have three children's stories published on LuLu.com and a poem published in the Goose River Press 2009 Anthology.  I am currently editing my novel, an Australian story;"Tom Ugly". 

Now that winter is coming close and we will be snowed in for months I will write more often. The garden is like a siren calling me during the short summer.

I am starting to gather a collection of my work here.



Birth Place: Ardrossan,  Australia

Accomplishments: Registered Nurse; retired.
Secon prize winner in the UNESCO intenational playwrite competition with my play, "After the Fair."
Finalist in 10 minute play competition Australia.

Published at GooseRiver Press 2009Anthology.
