Watch this space for upcoming projects.‘My writing explores our relationship with time and place; nature; freedom and responsibility; that good old fashioned notion, ‘love’; the journey we are all on within ourselves and what it means to be a woman, in our world, now. This last is also called feminism but, like the other themes, it is really just a questioning of the world from the only perspective I know. Most importantly, I try to be honest, though that can be the hardest thing.’
