At 68 years young I graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast; completing my Bachelor of Creative Writing and Master of Professional Practice Creative Writing, and recently completed a Diploma Family History at the University of Tasmania . A political activist; I support the ongoing fight for Tibetan Freedom, Sentient Rights, the right of all to live in a peaceful and democratic society and a Dementia Advocate in addition to being a writer. I share my life with my wonderful partner, our four-legged fur baby Hugo Boss and once we were the proud owners of a second-hand book store. I am immensely proud of our wonderful children and grandchildren. So grateful for the life I have. This blog is dedicated to my wonderful Dad who passed away in 2015 – the man who told me, I could be anyone and do anything I wanted in life– I just had to try.
I am privileged to live in Wonthaggi on the beautiful Bass Coast in Victoria, a change from the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, where we were surrounded by the incredible beauty of the Glass House Mountains.
I take my strength from the sea and the mountains and they provide inspiration for my writing and poetry. I hope you enjoy my work and please share your comments.
