About Ann D. Stevenson

I began writing poetry in my retirement. I have found it very therapeutic when facing difficult times - such as my husband being diagnosed with cancer. I feel very lucky to have discovered Family Friends Poetry, who have published some of my poems. It is especially rewarding when people comment kindly on my writing.

Fantastic poem - well done. So true. That says it all. I just wish I had written it myself.

I just love the poem. I had been feeling a bit low, and then I read your poem and the world felt like a brighter place. Thank you.

Mary
Good to read your bio. I, too, have been going through a difficult time and find that writing poetry helps, if only to focus on something positive.

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.
