About Me

I'm a poet and writer who blogs on life and faith issues at 'Words of Joy' and at  'Poetry Joy' where I write most of my poetry, 'Prayer Whispers' and shorter reflections. I write from a Christian perspective about my life, housebound with M.E and chronic illness, as well as general life and faith issues. My main emphasis is to support and encourage others who are living with chronic illness, overcoming a painful past, questioning about their faith and seeking the sacred in the secular.

I am beginning to live more of a contemplative, reflective Christian lifestyle and listening intently to God in prayer is a vital component of my work. Some of my poetry has been published in various anthologies over the years and I'm the author of the poetic memoir, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seeking-Solace-Discovering-grace-places/dp/1530782961/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1510159421&sr=1-2&keywords=seeking+solace" target="_blank">'Seeking Solace: Discovering Grace in Life's Dark Places'. I'd love to connect with you on my blogs or on socail media.

About Me
Ever since I was young I wanted to be a writer and now that my dream is becoming a reality, I am realizing that there is more to writing than just holding a pen and scribbling notes on paper. There is inspiration and commitment required of you if you wish to be an author. I have to say that I struggle with this a lot of the time. My ideas are always very good but honestly I'm impatient and want things done yesterday rather than taking my time and allowing the idea of a piece of writing to mull over in my mind. I've sat and thought about how I could fix this flaw of mine and it dawned on me that you can't write anything when you're not open meaning you've got to be happy or at the very least content before you pick up a pen. This got me thinking about my faith and how main source of inspiration comes from God and that my commitment is to serve him through the words I am writing. In the wee small hours of the morning I always find myself filled with ideas to write about and more often than not I have nothing to write with or on. This got me thinking - why does it always happen at this time? I guess I can't help when the inspiration strikes but I believe that its because that's when God decides to speak to me about what I should write. Either that or its just wishful thinking! I have often wondered whether or not we physically here the voice of God or is it our wishful thinking because we really want it to happen? I chose to believe in the latter. I was led to write for my local church magazine and have become a regular contributor. I have also written lyrics for hymns which have been sung by local choirs. If I can't write something for God I will not write it and with that in mind, I can think of nothing more fitting than gathering my spiritual thoughts all together in one collection to be enjoyed by everyone. Every journey has to start somewhere and my Christian life began when I was thirteen. I was in hospital in Edinburgh having spinal surgery when I finally understood what it meant to believe in God and what the power of prayer can achieve. It was not until three years later, however that I got the call to serve. On the weekend of my induction to the church I performed in a musical entitled, The Lion of Judah written by a fellow Christian that both powerfully and beautifully depicts the last days of Jesus on Earth. I felt full of inspiration and confidence in my decision to join the church community the following day. I have never forget that special weekend and how it changed me.

About Me

Perhaps I'll change/edit what I say here in the future, but today? Give me a great cup of Italian coffee (fav coffe shop is Casa Tua in Camden, right around the corner from my very young grandsons), a yellow legal pad from America and a good pen and loads of being alone (even in a cafe), and that makes for a happy day. Then, I NEED my little turquoise laptop to rewrite the day. The best days are topped off with husband and I going out on our 2015 Honda 650 on a summer's evening along the Surrey Hills. I meet my Lord, Jesus in the quiet and celebrate with friends!
