Welcome to my quiet little corner in cyberspace. I’m planting my dreams in this corner. I want to grow my writing skills and encourage kids to develop their writing.
I’ve been married for over 30 years and I have 2 grown up kids and three grandchildren. I am a teacher with a Graduate Diploma in Primary Music and a Master of Arts in Children’s Literature and Literacy.
I teach school holiday creative writing workshops for kids at Ku-ring-gai Art Centre in Roseville and I am a tutor for the Sydney Story Factory. I’m also a role model for Books in Homes. I love to encourage kids to enjoy reading and to make up their own stories.
A lot of the kids I teach are from Asian backgrounds. I’d like to see more children’s books that feature characters from different backgrounds.
I am currently the co-president of the CBCA NSW Branch Inc. Northern Sydney Sub-branch. We are a lively group of teachers, librarians, authors, illustrators and parents who love to promote reading and children’s books.
I believe it’s important for everyone to follow their dreams.
