Her career was in counselling and psychotherapy and there are echoes of this and of her love of the natural world in her poetry.

A small collection of her prayer poems was published in 2004 and is available from the Quiet Garden website. She lives in Worcestershire with her husband, and has two children and four grandchildren.
