Developing a social enterprise using animated narrative poetry-StopBeforeYouStart.

I joined Create50 in 2015. I have reviewed 140 projects.

If I was a fountain pen I would need to be constantly refilled, alas, I am not... Red Wine helps!

About Me

Loving Twisted; loving IMPACT and loving the challenge of writing; a complete change from the Health and Fitness industry in which I have worked for over 20 years. People fascinate me and I'm passionate about helping to overcome obstacles. I started writing after losing both parents within one year to smoking related lung cancer.

I thought I might be able to use the poems written to get a ‘don’t start’ message to young people. The poems are now being animated. Extracts are on the animator’s website here

I am also an Action learning Facilitator for the SSE and consider myself lucky to be working with such inspirational 'change makers.' I love the Create 50 theme and the idea of community helping each other. Onward and upwards!
