After being a teacher for over 30 years, I am now happily retired. I spent most of my life in Victoria, in suburban Melbourne and (later) rural Gippsland. I now live on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
Having always held a passion for writing, over many years my writing experience has included newspaper articles on educational matters, as well as various other pieces for newspapers and magazines.
I have also written over 500 eulogies to accompany my husband’s work as a funeral celebrant.
This website contains samples of my short stories, non-fiction accounts, children’s stories - and a blog which I began in 2012. (Check out topics in above headings)
In October 2021, I finally published my family memoir, entitled "63 Years, a memoir". Here's an excerpt:
"After investigating the new upstairs bedrooms, we ran down through the house into the back yard. With great relief, we recognised it all. The willow tree had grown, looking even more wonderful than I remembered. And the young lemon tree that Paul had planted in the middle of our back yard was twice as big. As feelings of joy and love overwhelmed me, memories returned. It seemed we had never left. Here we were, finally back where we belonged—in our beloved home. It was a feeling I never forgot...." Happy reading.
