Cofounder of Writershed, Kay is a retired teacher who at last has found time to write.
Kay hopes to write more poetry, stories, play scripts, murder mysteries, and biographies of family members if they let her!
She has already published one life story and some travel blogs but not for general sale, but you can read her travel blog on Travelpod.com, where she writes about her round-the-world trip and French experience.
Happily married and with two daughters and six grandchildren, Kay feels she has a lot to write about and has enjoyed putting this book together. WinK is a name Kay devised for her murder mystery writing that she has done for Thresholds, Women’s Institutes corporate functions, Carefree rallies, and Weybridge Mariner’s Club.
The poetry and stories in section 1 are from Families published separately in conjunction with Writershed, the Women Writers Workshop, a group Kay founded in 2011, now on Amazon and Kindle. The other stories are a selection from new projects Kay is working on. “The Spinster” is an extract from her biography of her mother’s life. “The Snowchild” is an extract from her children’s book Joshua’s Globe. Kay hopes to complete these projects in the near future as well as help the Writershed group to put together their second book. The best seller is still a long way in the future, and Kay has no illusions about how tough it is to get started as a writer. But one word of advice she can give to all those budding writers out there is to “write every day and make writing part of your life as that book inside you will never happen just talking about it.”
