I am a retired teacher having worked in local schools until 2008 when I decided to combine work and travel, taking jobs in international schools in Russian Federation, France, Cyprus and Ukraine.
Like many people, I have always wanted to
try my hand at writing; especially having spent the best part of 40 years helping and encouraging children to write stories. What I needed was a push and deadlines, which the writing group offers. I am, essentially, writing for myself using my considerable
life experiences and have no thoughts of seeking publication. I like the challenge and enjoyment of writing.
