About Ann D. Stevenson

Ann D. Stevenson only began writing after she retired, when she joined a Writing for Well-Being course. It was during a difficult time, as her husband had recently been diagnosed with cancer. She discovered that she really enjoyed writing, especially poetry. It was a real boost to her morale when Family Friend Poems began publishing her poems.
Ann has been married for well over 50 years and is lucky enough to have two children and four grandchildren. She now lives in The Cotswolds in the UK with her husband. In the past, Ann has worked as a teacher, helped in a children’s home and spent some time as a PA. One of her latest poems probably sums up how she feels about retirement!

    Ann, You have a talent that I don't have in my poetry. You can express your message in very few words but still leave a lasting, beautiful image in the reader's mind. This is a lovely poem in...

A particularly moving poem for me at the moment, as my husband has terminal cancer and is now on palliative care.
