Extra information:


I started out publishing poetry and short fiction. I have two collections of poetry published in the UK : Sudden Maraschinos, Redbeck Press and Tears of Honey and Gold, Five Leaves..

My latest book venture was quite different. This year I have published, also with Five Leaves Publications, a book entitled Reporting from Palestine 1943-44. This is my edition of an unpublished manuscript of my mother's that I discoverd under her bed when she died. She was a reporter and war correspondent in the Palestine Mandate. The manuscript, unpublished in 1945 due to the wartime paper shortage, is uncannily relevant today. In order to publish it I researched  in Israel and the West Bank, and shall be returning there to research a second manuscript of my mother's being prepared for publication.
