About This Author

I am sixty-two years young and get younger every year. I live in the beautiful, historic seaside town of Ramsgate, in East Kent and I love my bohemian life. I started writing when I was twelve years old and I've been practising the craft of writing on and off, life sometimes gets in the way, for many years. I've had poetry published and I enjoy performing poetry in local venues and I 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 was an editor for three years until March 2012, but now I'm concentrating on my own books. I'm currently writing children's stories and poetry, which my grandchildren love, and I’m waiting to get them published. I’m also a qualified psychic-medium and inspirational speaker, but writing has always been my first love. I lived on three different islands for seven years; the first one being 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 and lived there for fifteen months with fantastic views of Mellieha Bay and Malta’s tiny sister island, Gozo, and this gave me inspiration for my writing. I was always drawn to Gozo and the many writers who lived there, so I ended up living on this magical island for four years and it was amazing to be able to live and work by the turquoise ocean. 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 enjoy motivating people who are stuck in their lives and it’s a joy to help them rekindle their dreams and see the results. Inspirational speaking is something I enjoy immensely and if I only touch the life of one person in the audience then it is worthwhile.
