I’m a thirty-something mum, partner and copywriter. I have a degree in business management with marketing – but writing has always been a passion.

I write for fun as a hobby, so I like to make it interesting. I write about anything and everything – as poems. Funny poems, hopefully.

I love comedy. Particularly observational comedy. Victoria Wood, Pam Ayres and Sarah Millican are favourites.

Victoria Wood in particular was a huge influence on me while I was growing up and I was shocked and saddened by her death earlier this year. She was a genius at word play, writing songs and killer one liners – and was a huge inspiration to me.

It was only recently that a friend saw one of my poems and they convinced me to start a blog. (I might as well put them somewhere).

So The Smile Verses was born…
