I started writing seriously after I retired, though I'd had the occasional article or letter published in various newsletters or magazines before I reached that landmark age.
I began entering poetry contests in December 2010 after seeing an article in my local paper and I have had seven poems published to date in various anthologies. My first published article was in the Guardian weekend family supplement in December 2011. Since then I have had several further articles and letters published, in the Guardian and in other publications. I am continuing to work at furthering my career as a freelance writer and author.
In January 2012 I started writing the biography of my friends, Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan, who are country music stars from Florida. My book, 'In Harmony', was published in November 2012 and is selling well. The book is available in both paperback and e-book formats from Troubador Publishing (see link below) and Amazon. I am now getting back to my writing course, after putting it on hold until the completion my book.
In addition to my writing, I am a lover of country music and I attend many festivals in my little red campervan. I also go to country music gigs in clubs and pubs within easy travelling distance of my home, and I go line dancing most weeks.
I have made many friends with others who share my love of country music, and with many of the musicians who play at these gigs. I also love travelling, especially going to meet my friends and family in the USA.
