I was born Cathy Louise Wright in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Now, I live in Crawley, near London, in England. Big change!
There have been lots of places, many different lifestyles, lots of wonderful friends and most of all, I have learned lots of LESSONS in between, which means that life now is brilliant!!!!
I was not a keen student, but moving around gave me what turned out to be a great education~ I got the best of the best, in a way.
I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I loved the idea of further education but had no direction. So, when I was around fifteen I started writing poetry. It felt natural.
Trouble was, I was good at rhyming and the poetry I considered to be real poetry didn't.
So. The only thing I'm good at, I don't consider to be real.
Geesh. No pleasing some people.
I like Psychology. I'm good at helping people with their problems.
Mechanical Draughting?? Yes.
I take a course. I pass with flying colours.
I then (fast-forward!) become a printed circuit board designer,
thanks to perseverance and the help of my mentor, Charlie Myers. This I do for nearly thirty years.
Until the fateful day when I am made what they like to call redundant, here in England.
Since then, a casual job, and my REAL love,.. WORDS.
