I have been writing poetry all my life . I write as I find things tending to write spontaneously based on what I see and feel or an opinion I may have . I enjoy writing rhyming poetry however since joining Fanstory I have learn't so much and have tried other styles and enjoy the challenges this site offers.

I think life offers many great subjects to write about and hope people enjoy what I do write. I feel like I have found my poetry and writing home here and have enjoyed so many lovely reviewers and international friendships.

On a personal note I am married with 3 beautiful grown up children and 4 gorgeous grand daughters. I am a Trained Nurse and work as a Nurse Educator . I go to gym 3 times a week, enjoy gardening, and having fun with my family and great friends. Life is pretty great. Cheers Christine
