Hello World!

Welcome to my World of Words.

It is a world that has been home for me since I was a very little girl.  I grew up with a love of words thanks to my mother.  She was an avid reader who introduced me to me to the library when I was two years old.  I used to borrow big picture books with all the brightly coloured illustrations and pretend to read the words.

Mum told me I would sit in the back seat of the car on the way home, babbling away as I ‘read’ my books.  When Mum or Dad read the stories to me, I would memorise the text and there was no chance that they would ever be able to take any short-cuts in reading to me.  I would take a book to bed with me and put it under my pillow so that I had something to read when I woke up.

I loved reading then and I love reading now.  So, it seemed quite natural that I would eventually become a writer.

With this blog I hope to explore the world of words further…..through my own writing, the writing of friends and, hopefully, through the eyes of children.

Welcome to my world of words.
