I was born during WW2, spent the first half of my adult life being a teacher and the second half bringing four of my children up single-handedly. Since reaching retiring age I have remarried to the most wonderful of all women and spend a lot of time writing, sometimes poetry, sometimes blogs and sometimes longer works. I have self-published quite a few novels using the Lulu Print on Demand system.
