I’m a writer living in East Lothian, I live with my husband and two beautiful labradors. I enjoy spending time with my family which especially includes my 2 sons and grandchildren. Writing is my main focus, I have a passion for photography. As well as writing I am skilled in photography, communication, social media, lecturing, and blogging. I write my blog http://www.smileeachandeveryday.blog – it tells of everyday living with cancer. It promotes awareness of neuroendocrine cancerTakes in travels near and far on our Harley Davidson motorcycle. There are tales which are sad, happy, and informative; definitely all my own views and true.
I studied applied economics at university, brought up my children. Did lots of charity work with my husband and friends. Worked with The Cancer Centre in Edinburgh, lectured health promotion, predominantly men’s cancers and set up an awareness programme for testicular cancer for youngsters. Counselled patients and their families diagnosed with cancer. When I was diagnosed with carcinoid syndrome and found out it was incurable it was time to hang up my jacket. And do something different. Ive always been a writer, but not in an official way. This forced my hand.
