I write mainly poetry and publish under my maiden name of Stedman. My first collection Faith Hope Love was published in 1987 by New Wine Press with a foreword by Steve Chalke. Then while I was nursing with The Leprosy Mission they published The Song Of The Sparrow in 1991 with a foreword by Diana Princess of Wales. Several poems from this collection have been used in other anthologies. My third collection Raised From Dust (foreword by Wendy Craig) has just been published in 2016 by Onwards and Upwards and released into UK book shops in April 2017.
I am married to Bill (a Baptist Minister) and we have 2 teenage boys. We moved to the Isle of Man in 2012.
