Thank God, I'm a survivor! Life is wonderful - make the most of it; enjoy every minute, despite illnesses and obstacles!

Background Information

Born in Croatia, given away at four to an aunt and uncle; imprisoned with them in World War II, I was the only one saved by my father, who was imprisoned himself and shot three weeks later. Aunt and uncle perished in Auschwitz.
I arrived in England at 16, not knowing a word of the language, but I fell in love with it and ended teaching it. My childhood and circumstances taught me that life is precious and time should not be wasted. Also, we're here to help and be kind to each other.
I had a massive stroke at 48, but recovered after three years; also I'm diabetic and have angina, but enjoy and love life.
I belong to a local writers' group, The Inn Scribers and enjoy writing poetry and articles.

Additional Information

My autobiography, The Find, was published in 2004(see website), and I have won prizes for poetry in Writers' Forum magzine and in competitions; also for haiku poetry. I have had many articles and poems published in magazines and on various websites. I have been happily married for fifty years, have a son and daughter and four wonderful grandsons. As well as writing I enjoy aqua-aerobics line dancing and caravanning.
