South West Writers

About the Author

I love writing poetry and fiction often about psychological issues and our relationship with the environment, especially sea, coast and sky. I founded and lead Wimborne Writing Group which has expanded and flourished since its beginning 15 years ago, with many of its writers achieving publication and completing post-graduate creative writing degrees. I really enjoy supporting other writers on their writing journey. I live in Dorset with my husband and also spend time in Devon where I grew up.
