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 was married for well over 50 years, but sadly is now widowed. However, she is lucky enough to have two happily married children and four grandchildren. She now lives in The Cotswolds in the UK. In the past, Ann has worked as a teacher, helped in a children’s home and spent some time as a PA.

    Together for over fifty years,

    could dance forever in his arms.

    of freshly baked bread.
    Scents of the garden
    infused in my head.

Honestly, Doug, every time I read a poem on Family Friends and think 'that's pretty damn good' it seems to be by you. Yet again - well done. Very clever. All the best, Ann
