About Me

I am a mum of 4 ,a grandma,and a widow of 8 years.

I trained as a nurse(SRN) in London in the 60's and in between having babies I worked for the most part in the NHS! When I retired 3 years ago, I had withdrawal symptoms, from working and meeting with so many great people. We hear so much about the NHS and often the comments are not good.  But I am passionate about about the good it does and the concept of being "Free at the point of need".

I wanted to be able to tell my grandchildren about my training and the vision of the NHS in those days. It was not an easy life especially arriving in London as a niave 18year old with little experience of life outside my home. I had lots of lessons to learn and adjustment to make as I experinced hospital life.

 For this reason I have just self-published "Angels of the NHS".  I invite you to travel with me as through my experiences, and the stories of Patients  I cared for and the Professionals  I encountered I document the excitement of life in a hospital in the 60's.

About Me

I live in North Wales in a small village near St. Asaph. I teach people to drive and I also teach Astronomy GCSE (now about to go into my 6th year of this) part time at my local college. I taught maths for ten years in secondary school and now also teach maths part time in my local college. My particular interests are Astrophysics and Theology (degrees in both, currently updating my Atrophysics degree online with UCLAN as my previous degree was 30 years ago and somewhat out of date) and how they agree. I attend Llanelwy Christian Fellowship in St. Asaph.

About Me

I am an unpublished writer, but I have been writing stories and poems all my life - ever since I discovered that the stories my mother read to me were written by PEOPLE! and didn't just appear on the page.

I belongto a local Writers' Group but don't know any other Christian writers, apart from the people I have met at Scargill House on two of Adrian and Bridget Plass's weekends so I decided it was time I joined A.C.W. and maybe ventured into social media, which has always scared me.

No photograph I'm afraid - I hate seeing myself and avoid anything other than group photographs.

About Me

My first book was published by Glory to Glory publications in August 2012!!! Such an exciting moment!! YAY!!!

So - as a member of ACW, I obviously love to write... I also love to organise. So that's what I do, in a nutshell.

Until my debut book, I have been writing a Christian Teenage Girl's Magazine called SHINE which is published and distributed free of charge to girls accorss the world. It's such an honour to be able to use my hands to encourage others.

I also work for a Christian organisation - CMJ - and have the pleasure of writing for the website - as the website manager, and organising the annual Conference. My two favourite activities combined into the perfect job role!!! :-)

I am blessed with a wonderful husband and a gorgeous stepson (part time, as he lives with his mum). We love to take advantage of being so close to Sherwood Forest and the Derbyshire Peaks!
