Everything you didn’t want to know about me but I’m telling you anyway.

I’m a mother of 4 and, therefore, an amateur taxi-driver. I’ve been writing since I was 5 when I discovered that my local paper would pay for poems. I’ve had a story published in a magazine years ago and a few articles in a paper, also years ago, but most of my writing has been for my own amusement only. I love reading, especially poetry, history and short-stories. I also draw and paint and love Maths-related things. I was born to be a refined lady of leisure, obviously, but something went awry along the way and I became an uncouth supply teacher, but am now a copywriter. When I win the lottery, I will write and draw full-time.

  1. We seem to be a lot alike. Although I have no children I too love writing poems, articles about different things, reading and history not to mention drawing and painting. I find that those things unstress me and make me relax.

  2. Funny how like minds find one another. I have three children and that’s where that one stops for me. Four? Brave lady! Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking my poem ‘Reality and the Dream’, it’s deeply appreciated 🙂


  3. FInally! Another poet that likes math! I love your tag line… “just another reason why my children are embarrassed by me”… I’m a mom of 2 boys and enjoy rattling them every now and then.

  4. Love your poetry. You’ve got a wonderful sense of humor. I have six children. They’re embarrassed by my writing, too. I closed down one blog after they protested. Haven’t told them about this one. Just waiting to see how they react when my book is published. Keep on writing! Thanks for liking one of my poems, too. Blessings, Peg.

  5. You sound like a kindred spirit (except the 4 children bit – late husband and I could never have children), but I recognise the amateur taxi driver bit – my sister has 6 kids! Love you relaxed style. Thank you for the ‘Like’ too!

  6. Love your About page! After this, I am stopping off to read more of your poetry. I have a feeling that I am going to smile….

    And thanks for stopping by my blog! I write a lot about my sons in other posts. They rock my world!

    • Oh dear! My prose is pretty light-hearted but my poetry can get quite dark! I hope you’re not traumatised! 🙂 I love the way you write about your sons. It’s great that they inspire you so much! Thanks.

  7. I laughed aloud when I read your comment about embarrassing your children! I think most parents know that’s part of the parental commission. I look forward to perusing your work. Thanks for dropping by mine — or at least being at Recent Posts when it popped up.

  8. Dear friend, from what we can see in your blog, you really could be a professional writer. And that before winning the lottery. 😎

    Your texts have the sparkle that makes them interesting to read. Of course, every author needs to improve his or her technique. But very few have that sparkle.

    Congratulations: you are a refined lady of the work. And a fine person too.

  9. Lol! I’ve looked through a few of your recent poetry and I really like them. Your about page is amusing and entertaining. Can’t wait to see more 🙂
