Life is going on and I am yet another year older, turned 57 at the beginning of March. Twenty years ago I could not imagine trying to write articles for Hub Pages; or any other site for that matter, but I am glad to be here.
I have met so many inspirational people, some I now like to call friends, and actually life is not so bad at all.
I have finally finished writing my memoirs, A Lancashire Rose, Born to be a Thorn, which is also available on kindle from Amazon world wide. This project has been one of the hardest tasks that I have ever accomplished. To say that it has taken me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions is an uderstatement. But, I am so pleased that it is finished and I hope my story will be inspirational to other young children who were in the same circumstances as I was.
My second project, Grandpa Miller, is finally in print and also avialble on Kindle from Amazon world wide. It is a novella described as factual fiction. It is a story of one man's experience of country and Island life in the early 19th centuary. So far the critique and reviews has been very encouraging, and I am delighted that this story has been so well received.
I live with my toy boy taxi driver, who keeps me grounded and is fiercely supportive of my writing. We have one dog at the moment, an ex-racing greyhound whom we adopted from an animal sanctuary, and he has brought so much joy into our lives.
I still have my fantastic best friend J.J. Blue Star, my handsome appaloosa stallion. Oh I am such a proud mum, love him to bits.
And I have now two adorable grandsons, Callum and Thomas, two of the cutest baby boys in the whole of Ireland to keep me forever young.
Life is good and I am glad to be here. Come and join me on the rest of my journey. You are very welcome.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to make a special present for my beautiful grandson Callum. I sat down and wrote my own special Christmas story, a story that no one else would ever keep, except Callum. Those of you that know me well, will know by...
Whilst walking alone on the beach today, I thanked God for the peace and tranquillity that I experienced. Recently, walking alone along the shore has become a very important feature in my life. At this point I have to be honest, and say that the...
This Hub has been written to answer a challenge that a "virtual" friend and fellow writer from another site has asked me to write. It is intended to be reviewed in the genre of creative writing. It does contain some graphic sexual descriptions, and...
Before I write this hub, of which the circumstances I am not proud of, I would like all of you who have been in a similar situation to remember how heartbreaking a situation of this nature is to all concerned. One of Life's,...
Let me introduce you to Stan. Not the most impressive man to look at, standing 5' 6" tall, with what used to be a head full of shocking red hair. Stocky in build, others would say wiry, in fact just a normal everyday guy. But not to me. You see a...
Speak of Elizabethan England and one conjures up images of splendid costumes worn at the Royal Courts, extravagant entertainment and banquets. But alas, for many people life was very difficult. In the 16th century the population rose dramatically...
