I’ve always been a girl who loves to write, and a bit of a daydreamer too.
Some years ago I started doodling and writing a short story for my children about a little Viking boy called Anton. They liked reading about Anton and so Anton the Brave Viking was born. Anton is very close to my heart, and I have recently updated one of my original stories. With some lovely illustrations by Jacqueline Tee, Anton the Viking and the King of Crumbly Castle is now available on Amazon.
In 2014 I published my first novel, ‘Tea at Raphael’s’..a book about a very special cafe, where nothing is as it seems, and acts of kindness and love prevail.
I have also published a poetry book entitled ‘Under the Same Stars’ which is a unique collection of poems, anecdotes and illustrations.
In March I started writing some poetry relating to the lockdown and the challenging times we are all facing. I put together some of my favourite photographs too. This is obviously a work in progress as currently we are back in lockdown again…. However it gave me real comfort putting words and thoughts on paper. Writing ‘Once in a Garden of Flowers’ gave me a chance to look back at certain events in my life too, and the people who are close to my heart. Some of my poetry has appeared on my blog and some is new. If you would like a copy of any of my poems or indeed my ‘lockdown’ collection please let me know.
My book, Best Foot Forward – Moving on From Anxiety’ is available on Amazon in book form and is also available to download. Partly taken from my blogs and from my own experience with anxiety, I hope it will help anyone who struggles with anxiety at whatever level. In these unprecedented times, it’s good to know we are not alone.
And here is another venture – ‘The Wonky House Mouse Tales’ – tales of some rather cheeky mice, written and illustrated during lockdown to keep my spirits up. I hope it will cheer you and your children or grandchildren too . It’s time to be nice to mice!
Available now at Amazon.co.uk
