When I grow up

In answer to the question, what did I want to be when I grew up. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, that has never changed. I am a writer now, and was when I was five. I also wanted to be an actress. I was going to be centre stage. I did a little bit of drama at school. I played the mother of the main character, and a can can girl.

I also wanted to sing. At one point I was in the school choir. We sang to the elderly at Christmas. It was a good job they were deaf, as I am tone deaf with my singing. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it, but even my children told me not to sing nursery rhymes.

So that’s me, and I never got to be an actress, but that’s okay because I probably wouldn’t have been any good. I got to be part of that world, but in a writing capacity.

Instead of acting in a play, I’ve written one.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. I imagine when you write a play you do fulfill some of that acting wannabe.
    I never had a dream or even much thought of what I wanted to do. Just drifted into whatever I thought I should be doing. And that kept me clothed and fed. 🙂
