Description

In the late 1960s, family structure was largely uncomplicated: hardworking dad, stay-at-home mum and a couple of well-groomed kids. Parties were invitation-only and probably as well structured as the families who held them. I wouldn’t know – our family wasn’t invited to any parties. Our family structure was too complicated: a pensioner mum (aka a deserted wife) with three innocent kids.

My first memoir was accepted by Memoria in 2017, I have been steadily writing in my downtime since … from editorials and a radio ad to children’s books and another memoir. Writing makes me feel comfortable – regardless of the subject matter, I am in my happy place when I am writing.
