Hello and welcome!!


Writing, reading, and telling stories and poems although it may seem cliched have always been a part of my life.

Writing stories and trying in some small way to emulate the skill of the authors I loved best has fired my enthusiasm for writing. There is a whole world of truly wonderful children’s books and authors out there. I am hoping in some way to be considered a part this world of creators and that the stories I write, will appeal to some, connect with others, and maybe even engender a love of reading and writing as it did for me.

Poetry is a great way to express ideas and to use our wonderful language to its full effect. I have published three poetry books of my work – two for adults, one for children and I hope you enjoy reading the examples on this site.

Artwork As well writing I love to paint and make things from wire. On this site you will find a selection of my artworks. I work in the media of hand painted digital watercolours and small wire sculptures. Painting and creating animals, especially cats, are a favourite although you might find some other surprises. If you like them then there’s the opportunity to buy or order as gifts for others. Commissions are happily undertaken. So please have a look through these pages.

It is always good to receive comments about my work, written, painted, or sculpted so please let me know. You can leave me a message or write a review.

Thanks Val x
