I live in East Sussex with my Australian husband and one chinchilla.We have two grown up children and returned to England sixteen years ago after spending fourteen years Downunder. I am a Christian and an active member of a local church. I enjoy writing short stories but do aspire to producing a novel. I like fiddling around with a variety of arts and crafts and particularly enjoy patchwork and cake decorating, both done with great gusto and very little talent! I am trying my hand at children's stories.

Under The Big Sky
There's a fragrance in the air as I stand under the big sky spanning the driest state in the Great South Land. As the scorching north wind whispers around me stirring the leaves of the gums and the mallee the scent of eucalyptus drifts past my nose and I am surprised to feel a sense of homecoming.
