This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is DSC_0413-Copy-681x1024.jpgWe all have many stories to tell… Mine about writing began when I turned 50. Up until then, I had often moaned about the lack of practical books, but one day someone stopped me short. She said, “Just stop moaning and write them yourself.” Talk about a comment changing my life!

At that moment I realized I had a voice and words began to tumble out onto my computer. Then I remembered my grandfather, a man I had never met, who died of starvation in a Siberian prisoner of war camp. He too had been a writer!
