About This Blagger …er Blogger
Born in a hotel in England’s Westcountry, I had an unusual, adventurous childhood that encompassed everything from playing on railway tracks to sailing small boats to Africa (twice). I had only a patchy primary education and at seventeen I ran away to sea. (Actually my mother drove me to join my first ship and my father was the captain but you get the idea.) In five years I went from stewardess to deckhand to first mate and I am still a first mate (but I will sail as second mate if you pay me enough.)
The unusual, adventurous and rootless little girl has grown up, got stripes and an MA in Creative Writing but she hasn’t changed. A loner who was bullied at school and isolated by my gender at work, my best friend has always been a pen and paper. Now that technology has given me a platform, I’m writing for Shedward. Maybe I’ll entertain, anger or provoke thought but whatever the case it’s amusing me and that will do for now.
