A year ago I shared my first post. This is #53.

From about this time last year, I knuckled down to the collation, editing and typesetting of my first volume of poetry. It is now available for preview and purchase via

Since June last year, my work has been published in the poetry journals PIYE and Carapace.

Since 15th June last year, I have participated in writing groups, poetry workshops and a few poetry readings.

This time a year ago, I was quite ill. Now I am stronger, fitter and grateful for each day during which my body carries me.

At this time in 2012, I didn’t know what the next year would hold or how I would ‘manage it.’  A year later, I am still writing and trying to stay true to my vision of being A Writer.

A heartfelt thank you to all my readers for following, commenting and sharing. To all the friends, family and community who continue to buoy me, a thank you is also due.

Where will things be at in 2014? I do wonder and dream.
