Writing my biography for an author website is far from what I expected to be doing at the age of 52. As a child I found writing and reading very difficult – so much so an Educational Psychologist was asked to assess me. My parents were told my IQ was above average and that I had Dyslexia.
In the 1970’s little was known about Dyslexia. However, I have my teachers to thank for their creative homework - the repetitive writing down of all the words I could think of starting or ending with particular sounds, and then writing full pages of the words I had initially spelled incorrectly helped me to learn not only to spell, but memorise rhyme too.
‘In the Palm of His Hand’ is a collection of Christian poetry which includes pieces written some years ago and more recent pieces. This title will be released in hardback format March 2019.
