Born in London 1933, I went to Australia and lived there 46 years. I returned to live in UK in 2009 and have regained my life of writing. Whilst in Australia, I founded one of Queensland's biggest writing associations. (Google: Gold Coast Writers Assn.) who celebrated their 20th Anniversary last year. Writing and being published since 1985 in Australia, my work appeared in popular magazines such as Women's Weekly, New Idea, Womens World, Take 5, Wellbeing, Prime Time and literary education publications. I loved entering writing competitions and won enough to pass along my experiences to others. I was able to help many budding authors by running competitions, writing classes, and individual reviewing their work. This activity was sadly interrupted by the terminal illness of my husband and only since I have returned to my homeland, have I resumed my literary career. My first book THE FOUR ELIZABETHS has been published by xlibrispublishing, and is also available as an ebook with Amazon Books.com and Barnes & Noble.com. I am nearly halfway through writing the sequel (working title ELIZABETH'S NEW LIFE) and hope to have this published by the end of 2011.
