WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
Hello! I began this blog by posting my poetry but, more recently, I have been writing about what life has been like since the pandemic began. In the first few months of lockdown I was blogging nearly every single day.
I’m the mother of three, grandmother of six, writer, author (How to Get into Advertising, Cengage Learning), poet, former lecturer, copywriter and the founder of Get Into Advertising Training Workshops.
At the end of 2019 a book of my poetry was published, “Wonderland”. It includes some of the poems you’ll find on my blog. It costs £5.00 plus £1.50 postage within the UK. 10% of any profit I make from sales will be donated to Macmillan Cancer. If you’d like a copy, please do let me know.
BC (Before Corona) I was reading my poetry to live audiences – now the only audiences I have are online and on Zoom!
I hope that, as well as reading my latest blog posts, you’ll also want to look at some of my poetry. I call it My Life in Poems because most of it is autobiographical. If you ask me for a favourite I would say that it’s “Another Birthday”.
I’ve also included some “flash fiction”. These are extremely short stories – sometimes only a paragraph or two long.
Please let me have your comments. Let me know what you like and what has resonated with you.
Keep looking. Keep liking. I hope you will want to follow My Life in Poems and look forward to hearing from you.
