I am a Kent-based playwright, writing instructor, and mother of two.  My plays, including Mothers Have Nine Lives, and Lizzy, Darcy and Jane, have been published and produced throughout the US, the UK, and Australia, and are posted on  the ProPlay Website.  I began writing stories and poems for the children I babysat two decades ago, and I began making up rhymes for my own duo while they were still in utero (my personal captive audience).  As a creative writing instructor, my guiding premise is that writing—like other creative pursuits—fuel mental health and lead to a more fulfilling, intensely experienced life.  I launched Mums Write! to share what I have learned along the way.

    I remember your early play about mothers, “Mothers Have Nine Lives” and being surprised at your awareness of many different mothering situations. Bravo for sharing what you know, about writing and mothering.
