I’m a late bloomer, I began my writing career in the 1970’s when I enrolled in a creative writer’s course through TAFE gaining a Pass 1.  I studied by correspondence at Australian College of Journalism and gained a Diploma of Freelance Travel Writing & Photography.  I was named winner in three short story competitions and reached second place twice.

Here my buds are starting to flower as I have had work published in numerous anthologies. Articles printed in Town & Country Farmer and GrassRoots and worked for a brief period as journalist for the local paper, The Transcontinental.

My bloom is in full flower now I have self-published two biographies, and worked as editor for three books. I am a contributor to projects sponsored by ABC Open.

My bloom is still in full flower as I continue to put pen to paper.

I have other blooms that I cultivate such as needlework, crocheting,

I work in my husbands nursery potting up plants that he grows from cuttings.  We take our plants to two local market to sell them. 

Married for sixty one years; I am wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother.
