After more than thirty years as a member of the Swansea and District Writers’ Circle the group continues to be an on-going influence in my writing. Circle members have enriched my life with kindness, advice and inspiration and I am privileged to count them as friends. It is a pleasure to be amongst people who share the love of writing.

My first attempt at self publishing on Amazon was a ‘how to’ ebook on house buying, The Householders’ Guide To Sanity. This was a huge learning curve and something I would not have attempted without the encouragement of the group. 

Some successes in short story competitions have come my way and I’ve had a few published in anthologies, but most of my writing consists of plays that will never leave the page and stories that might never be read. Never mind, I enjoyed writing them. Once upon a time a long, long time ago, I read my work on BBC Radio Wales. But that’s another story.
