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: "On the day that the furniture van came and removed our goods and chattels from the house, I walked through the empty rooms, one at a time. I said goodbye to each room in turn. When I came to our bedroom, I stepped inside the inbuilt wardrobe and closed the door. Sitting on the floor of the cupboard, I said a goodbye prayer as tears rolled down my cheeks. I count that day as the end of my childhood. I was eleven."
