I love to write, especially poetry. Usually I write in response to what I am reading, or what is happening in my life.
It is mostly God centred because that's where my heart is. Free verse and haiku are my most prolific style. I am really enjoying reading other's efforts. I see I am not alone. I have written two thirds of a book about peace in all its dimensions but it is largely about me (so that is boring potentially) and all I have read about being at peace with self and others and God. It was an interesting quest with an interesting conclusion: everybody has the same pressures and it is largely up to us to respond with love and dignity in all circumstances and to know the source of that special kind of love. Love and peace to all who have been kind enough to read this much. PS My real name is Robyn and I have a wonderful husband and great memories of 4 faithful friendly dogs in my life.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
