I wrote a column for the Good Life magazine for a number of years as well as some articles in my free time. In addition, wrote a fantasy novel which is undergoing its umpteenth rewrite however unfortunately I seem to have lost interest in it. Started this as a screenplay, however was advised it was not suitable for UK market so changed it into a novel. I also write poetry, Haiku and songs.
I spent some time in the Algarve and am presently outlining a comedy on a middle -aged woman's experiences there. I decided to tackle this as a book and then hopefully move into a TV series. Would love to link up with another writer as I have some hilarious material. I would value some advice and input as I work better when motivated by the other writers around me.
Part of the Inauguration Speech when Nelson Mandela was made President of South Africa in 1994. 'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be fabulous, brilliant, talented, gorgeous? Actually, who are you not to be, you are a child of God and your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, like children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in every one of us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give people permission to do the same. As we are liberated by our fears, our presence automatically liberates others.'
