My first “published” writing was an Enid Blyton, Famous Five/Secret Seven-style adventure story, Sand Island. It was 1972 and I was ten-years old.
I wrote and illustrated the story, my aunt, the only one in our family who owned a typewriter, typed up the manuscript and my father helped me bind and cover the book. The treasured first and only edition still exists.
In the 40 plus years since, I’ve continued writing, fiction and nonfiction, short stories, articles on dogs, travel journals and diaries. I’ve dabbled with novels, radio plays and even penned a stand-up comedy script. I’ve written letters and emails, and tweeted and blogged my observations on life, the universe and … well, perhaps not everything!
A lot of my writing is now published on TallAndTrue.com, an online magazine and forum for writers, readers and publishers. Please feel free to visit TallAndTrue.com to read and comment on my writing and others, and to share your own writing.
