I live to express, encourage, and give insight.  

I can write poetry just about anytime and anywhere - there is always inspiration.  I want my poems to have the effect on people that causes them to have an 'Oh! Yes!' moment or shed a tear knowing that I am representing their voice within.

I recently spent two months doing a book proposal on the topic of 'Is There Still No Place Like Home?'.  I explored the incredible Māori concept of home and what we can learn from it and how we can connect both Māori and Pākehā to their own sense of home. I went further and spoke with people who had been homeless and those who who did and did not feel 'at home'.  I explored refugeeism, DNA, nationalism to name but a few.
Andrew and I bonded over this shared passion for the topic of home.  He ended up helping me write and edit the book and if I can get enough support, I hope will continue to do so.

I am 33,000 words into a mystery novel and find I don't have the time to give to this very cool book - I would like to find the time.

In 2015, I twice won the Agatha Christie Ltd/Write Your Own Christie Award.  I had a very lovely dinner with Christie's grandson, Mathew and David Braun, from HarperCollins and some other winners -it was a dream come true.  It also bolstered my confidence in my ability to write.

Because of my ongoing chronic illnesses, I can't go out there and teach and earn a salary.  Will you join me on this journey and exploration of words and creativity?

Even if it's a $1 a week, I will so appreciate your support.  As a thank you to my supporters, I will write each their very own poem which will be theirs to keep.  You will be the first to be updated about my book proposal, novel, poetry and anything else you might be interested in.

Thank you!
