I’m in my eighties now (though I’m about seventeen in my head) and can’t get out as much as I’d like and so a good read takes me to far away places. The mirror lies but I can’t deny the aches and pains!
My family keep telling me to write my autobiography and I will get round to it one of these days. I was an evacuee during the war but my mother missed me and I was brought back to London with bombs going off all round! I’d like to write about this but many of my memories are still painful.
Nowadays, most of my writing is to friends and family. It’s important to keep in touch.
My dear companion now is my cat, Sheba, the boss round here. She’s feisty and moody.
I’ve always loved Dorset and was lucky enough to move down here to be closer to family a few years ago.
I read avidly, and I particularly enjoy historical fiction. However, good writing of all types draws me in.
I have already found some remarkably strong and original work on this site and look forward to more discoveries. I have particularly fallen in love with the world within 'WHERE SHE LIES - a beautiful tale full of mystery, set in Dorset. It has wonderful characters and some shocking moments. So many first class reads here!
