About Ann D. Stevenson

I turned to poetry for its therapeutic value when I was faced with difficult times, this is probably reflected in some of my poems.

On a happier note, I am married to a retired military man and lucky enough to have a lovely family, two children and four grandchildren. Retired, having previously worked as a teacher, in a children’s home and as a PA. Spent a couple of years in America as a child. Subsequently lived briefly in Rome and also in The Falkland Islands. UK homes have been in Scotland, Devon and London. Now settled in the Cotswolds, enjoying gardening, playing bridge and walking the dog, when not writing and reading poetry.

Honestly Anne, find yourself an illustrator and you're done. Just let me know when the book is in print. Bless you for your kind words about my own scribbles.
