    I have been writing since my teenage years. I always found it to be far easier to write about things than to talk about them, and so set about writing for release, in place of a diary, I would write Poetry or Stories. I have often written to raise money for charities such as F.L.O.W. and G.O.S.H.

    I have written over 200 pieces ranging from a Children's Adventure Series to Teen Thrillers and Novels, Military and Medical papers and Articles and Poems and more, on many different subjects. Currently I am mid- projects, and am mid-Publishing two books. Life is always busy, and there is never a dull day.

    I run numerous websites, run a Forum and am a mum of one. When I am not writing, I am probably volunteering or working. When I am not doing those things, I am also a part time Local Ranger and I distribute the local Newsletter as well as trying to raise money for various charities.

    Having struggled in the last few years with a degenerative progressive disease, I have thrown myself into my Writing. I am currently working on a Biography, along with two Medical based books, as well as my Teen Thriller 'The House.'

    My Latest Children's Short is called Fuzzy Buzz-wuzz and Bizzwizz and my latest Poem is called I'm a Medic (and I love to hear you scream my name. I am predominantly a Rhyming Poet, who enjoys the Expressionist style, but I like to try new challenges outside of my comfort zone. I think it teaches you to become better at what you do if you aren't afraid of making or showing your mistakes and weaknesses.

    My one pet hate is the wilfully ignorant. There is so much of it in the world, it truly saddens me. I believe myself to be a tolerant open-minded individual, and all I ask is for some respect, because that is what I give others.

    I would most like for my work to teach Children, as I think it is important that they understand how to express themselves. The magic is within them, I say, and if you let the pen possess you, then you can create such wonderful things. Better to create than destroy.

    And I ramble a lot. I don't mean walking-I mean I type as it comes to my head, and it seems to be non-stop sometimes! *laughs* I have wicked humour, and that is what helps me to survive each day. In my job if you don't have it, you go mad, and sanity is far more pleasant.
