About This Author

I started writing aged ten, have been writing for over 70 years and plan to continue to do so. My special interests are concerned with the effects of war on the children and grandchildren of participants - a themr featured in my 2012 book, 'The Other Side of Silence'. My new book, 'Courage to Change', is concerned with addiction and its effects.
