Latest News...

The April 2009 edition of Hampshire Life magazine is out now and my article, on holidaying at home, covers three pages and is illustrated with several of my photographs. I must say a big 'thank you' to the editor, Claire Pitcher, for making the article look so good.

Also this week, I have been asked to speak at the Hants, Wilts and Dorset Regional Meeting of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists (SWWJ) on 14th May. I will be speaking about word/photograph packages and how to go about putting them together for publication. I will, of course, be taking along a copy of Hampshire Life to illustrate my point!

Hi Penny

Just followed the links at the bottom of your OU email to take a look at your site! V impressive. Congrats on the forthcoming book - that is fabulous news. You kept that one quiet!

Congratulations - you really are establishing yourself back in Blighty! (look out everyone!)

Thank you very much Shanta and Rob for your comments.
I have kept a low profile at the OU. I am aware that I am the lone professional writer amongst the students. I write in a completely different vein to that covered by the Diploma in Literature and Creative Writing, which is one reason why I thought I would study the courses involved. Thank you to Shanta for your congratulations and positive comments. They are appreciated.
Rob, I am trying hard! It is very difficult to come back to your 'home' country after so many years and try to slot back in. Each little success reported is often as a result of many setbacks, which I do not blog about!
Thank you both for taking the time to comment. This blog is very short of feedback, so it is really nice to hear from readers.
