In the beginning宼/p>

I started writing seriously after the demise of my Praktica LTL in the 1970s, which had occurred whilst walking OffaĹke.
I wrote purely to acquire the wherewithal to purchase a replacement. In the following years I wrote only intermittently because of family, work and other commitments.

Magazines for whom I wrote around that time under Margaret B Drake
Great Outdoors (now TGO)
Lancashire Life
Yorkshire Ridings

Radio Lancashire
Short story entitled 襠CottageⲾ
Early Trackways in the South Pennines
In 1982 Bill Breakall of the new Birchcliffe Heritage Centre at Hebden Bridge commissioned me to write an account of packhorse routes in the South Pennines.

The interest and ensuing research into this ancient system of communication had been triggered off by discovering a packhorse causeway above Wycoller, near Colne in Lancashire, which had obviously served a lime kiln.

The booklet was accompanied by a wallet of self-guide walks along packways that my former husband David Drake and I had followed.


My second husband developed early-onset Alzheimerĩsease whilst still working and died ten years later. It prompted me to write accounts for two US anthologies.

ïat of Paintᰰeared in 䯲ies of Strength稩ch was published by Lulu in November 2005. The anthology was produced to raise money for the charities involved in Hurricane Katrina. The stories chosen for the anthology by Jenna Glatzer and her team were from international entries submitted by subscribers to the website.

妯re Its Time硳 published in 謹es of Alzheimerࢹ LaChance Publications, New York September 2006. This was the first anthology in a series which was designed to cover major life experiences. My essay deals with the problems peculiar to someone suffering from an old personऩsease whilst still in the prime of life and those of their partner because of the different agenda of younger couples for whom there is little support.

My articles are supported by images I take with either a Nikon D40X SLR Digital or digital Leica C-LUX 3 Compact.

For their 2011 calendar the Rotary Club of Preston North used eight of my images.

Westmorland Gazette published a large coffee table book, The Beautiful Lakes in April 2011. This book of photography includes nine of my images.
