I know absolutely nothing about Forget-Me-Nots, I have no idea where Kazakhstan is and I don’t particularly like children. I loathe bullies and dresses. I have an irrational fear of heights, public toilets and peas. I have three children and yes I do have a favourite. I love to visit new places although I do not like to travel. I spend most of my life in pyjamas. I grew up in the Western Suburbs of Sydney. I now live in Gol Gol, NSW with my husband, two dogs and a cat that I am not supposed to know we have.
Writing found me when I was in Year 2, and the best story ever written was beaten out by a boy who received the creative writing award I am still bitter about that although I did manage to relieve him of all his marbles at lunchtime so all was not lost.
I spent a lot of time outside the principal’s office where I would be punished by writing… They would even supply the stationery.
I wrote another best ever story in Year 9 unfortunately I was in Geography and my epee wielding teacher didn’t appreciate my epic tale of the rogue geography teacher going on a rampage with an epee. All my pleas that it wasn’t about her fell on deaf ears.
Passing notes in class I took as a challenge. All my contributions were in red… to indicate all the spelling and grammatical errors.
