I am 42 years old with a full and varied life. I have mainly worked within the airline industry, but also taught English in Taiwan for five years, where I bought up my daughter for two and half years.
I was compelled into writing poetry four years ago and have built up a great desire to be published. I am just about to complete an Open University degree and once that has finished I have pledged to finish writing my novel by Easter 2007.
This is the first time I have ever submitted a poem for criticism.
