I have loved writing since I was a child and more recently I've felt a need to write what I think, feel and know wanting, in so doing to enter the reality of existence and share in a way that might help others during their pilgrimage through life to the waiting life to come. This can be hard at times.Themes as loss, isolation, suffering, death, longing, peace with oneself have been companions on my journey as they have, of course for others. At one time I made up things from my imagination and even once won a prize with a Detective story, now I write about what I feel, know and experience trying and use language in a way that is careful and sensitive. My evolving into the writer I am today links very muc with the passing of my mother. Mum was, for many years wheelchair disabled with arthritis and I was her carer and companion carrying out all her treatment, everything, you name it I did it. Many people, I know, join me in remembering Mum's courage, good humour and concern for others, Dad and I missed her very much then, just last year Dad also passed on. I have written much poetry arising from this one of which won an award and, I have been through periods of serious and at times life threatening distress which have set me thinking and producing the work I do now as a writer and artist. The stories explore life as it can be experienced, they enter into the mystery existance, I hope and believe they can will be helpful in some way to whoever reads them
