My Published work

I am a long long way away from having a regular column in the newspaper or a magazine or even a TV show I know. Sigh..talk about wishful thinking but the bug to write has created the following articles, poems and short stories so far and put me on cloud 9 with each of them. (Last updated 1st May 2017)

When I sent my poem to the editor, I mentioned that I was in the USA and not Australia. She didn’t seem to bat an eyelid but said thanks for sending the address. I had a feeling that she would reject my poem as it would mean sending me my contributor’s copy all the way.

Well, Long story short, I am thrilled to see my copy
