I am in my mid 60s, on the last lap of a life that has been a journey of experiences, mostly of normality but also of sad, sometime heartbreaking periods, funny moments, moments of high hilarity. These experiences inform my writing. I began my writing career by contributing stories to my daughter’s blog, memoirs about my life and her childhood. Joining a writing group mentored by the poet James Morgan Nash has led to an interest in poetry and fiction writing. For most of my working life I was a designer, so while not well schooled in formal English, l enjoy the craft of writing. Using words and phrases I see there is construction and architecture in the creation of poems and stories.
My book Memory Spill, a memoir of my childhood in Scotland is available on Amazon. I have contributed to The Pulse of Everything, an anthology of poetry and prose and I am a regular contributor to the American literary website The Drabble.
