I’m a poet and novelist living in beautiful Teesdale, County Durham. After taking redundancy in 2011, I studied for an MA in Poetry at Royal Holloway, University of London. In 2014 I relocated from Oxfordshire to Barnard Castle, County Durham, with my husband, Frank (who works for a pharma company) and two Battersea rescue cats, Socks and Zoe.
I’m a town councillor in Barnard Castle. I’m also the proprietor of The Stare’s Nest, a webzine of poetry with a political and social conscience.
A pamphlet of poems, entitled The Ship Owner’s House, is due for publication by Vane Women Press in April 2018.
