I live with my husband in a beautiful area of the Chilterns. I enjoy writing love poems, inspirational verse, verse about my Christian faith, and humorous poems. I have just published my first foray into the world of fiction, with my novelette, Where Angels Tread - a story about a young, homeless girl. My next book, Beautiful, is due to be published shortly.

You can keep up with my new book releases on Amazon and Goodreads. If you are on Goodreads, do come and say, "Hi."

By the way, if you have come over from Squidoo you may recognise me as LoveLifeLaughter
