I am sixty-two years young and I live in the beautiful, historic seaside town of Ramsgate, in East Kent. I've started writing when I was twelve years old and I've been practising the craft of writing on and off for many years. I've had poetry published in a few magazines and I enjoy performance poetry in local venues; I also belong to the Broadstairs Folk Week Poets. I had my own column in a local paper when in my twenties and I've learnt a lot about editing and publishing over the years. I'm currently writing children's books, which my grandchildren love, and I’ve been advised by a publisher to get an agent.
I’m also a qualified psychic-medium and speaker and I teach many spiritual subjects, but writing has always been my first love. I lived on three different islands for seven years; the first one was, La Gomera, a small but stunning sub-tropical island in the Canaries, where I spent twenty-one months writing lots of poetry and making copious notes for my first book, ‘Where the Spirit Moves You’. I then moved to Malta for fifteen months where I had fantastic views of Mellieha Bay and Malta’s sister island, Gozo, and this gave me inspiration for my writing. I then moved to Gozo for four years and it was amazing to live and work by the turquoise Mediterranean. My spiritual and writing students used to come and stay with me on Malta and Gozo and they found it an ideal place to have fun while learning.
I can help students hone their writing skills and banish writer's block. I also teach Journal writing but this is not just rigid daily diary entries, I show students how to tap into their inner resources which can be quite powerful.
I enjoy motivating people who are stuck in their lives and it’s a joy to help them rekindle their dreams. Inspirational speaking is something I have done for numerous years and if I only touch the life of one person in the audience then it is worthwhile.
