Everybody has a book in them, or so it's said. But it's something else again getting it onto the page and to a place where it might be shared.

I have been writing since I was a young child. Always, my dream was to see my name on the spine of a book. Books gave me life, a dream to live by. Through their portals I could escape so easily into other worlds. Books also saved my life ... yes, really!

This is the story of my books and my journey as an author, including a very personal view of my journey through Life. I hope it will inspire and give hope to writers and readers young and old.

Getting published can be a waiting game. It's hard .. and getting harder. But then sometimes it can happen in an unexpected way and suddenly, we truly are living our dream. And we realise that it isn't after all the winning that is important, but the journey that is ours along the way.

I would love to hear from anyone who connects with what is written here. A signed copy of any of my books is available. You have only to write and ask:

My Guardian Angel

Her smile is in the rainbow
Face turned towards the sun.
Her kisses in the raindrops
Falling one by one
And I know she is there
On a wing, in a prayer
An Angel, My Guardian Angel
Always there.

She’s waiting in the sunrise
To greet a bright new day,
Listening to my fears,
Those things so hard to say;
And in the evening she beckons
Calling me to prayer –
An Angel, my Guardian Angel
Always there.

She’s the promise of tomorrow,
The Dream of yesterday;
In my heart I feel her calling
She’s never far away.
She’s the strength that keeps me going
The Love that holds me here –
An Angel, my Guardian Angel
I love you.

Written & Dedicated to my Soulmate, Mum,
Nina Harrington (nee Chessall); who passed away to Cancer:
9.4.1918 - 22.7.1996

 Mum taught me the true value of love -
accepting and supporting me just as I am.
I still feel her presence, her peace, her love,
in every moment of every day in my Life,
through the good times, and the bad.
True Love is Eternal
