Writing has helped me for decades. It helps me to process my thoughts and it helps me (and millions of others) deal with emotions and feelings in a safe and controlled way. This is called journaling : )

My love of language and of the written word began when I was just a girl, and over the years I have journaled, written non-fiction, poetry, academic papers, blog posts and fiction and non-fiction short stories.

My memoir Misplaced is in progress, and due to be complete in 2021. Meanwhile my MSc research dissertation is due to be converted to a printed book in 2021. The topic is that of wellbeing in adult adoptees which is a very important subject and one which is very close to my heart.

In 2020 I wrote a piece titled My Two Fathers for an anthology about father-daughter relationships which is due to be published in 2021.

Please see all my publications.
