About Me
I am single but have a foster son. I used to work for a small publishing company as a proofreader among other things, so I spent a lot of my time correcting other people's mistakes, but please don't think I don't make any myself! In retirement I am the editor of a community newspaper.
Type of Writer
News, sports items, short stories, poems, puzzles.
Writing Style
Not sure how to describe my writing style except I try to write factually, concisely and interestingly.
Salvation Army, football, music, reading, writing, networking (mainly facebook).
Favorite Genres
Biographical, experience, emotional, religious, inspirational, teen, not necessarily just these.
Favorite Books
I like a lot of the small run books we produce at work. You will not have heard of them.
Favorite Authors
Again several little-known writers are among my faves. Favourite famous author is probably Iris Murdoch.
Favorite Poets
William Wordsworth. Fave poem: "She dwelt among the untrodden ways".
Favorite Quote
You can only play the hand you're dealt. Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. Nothing you have ever done is bigger than God's grace to forgive and restore.
Favorite Music
Favorite Movies
Whistle Down the Wind.
