At the ripe old age of 73, (May 2024), I'm proud to say that I am a published author. I've always had the ability to tell a good story. There are numerous stories in my head taken from the challenges and experiences I've had over the years. One day, I just mentioned to Christine "I've written a book, can I read it to you?" The rest is history and my first book, 'The Order of the Poop', (this is the first of a five-book series) is now published.
