My book is now in selected places and can be bought via Amazon.
I don’t know what it is about writing - like a moth to a light bulb – that captures my interest.
Experimentation with language is interesting to me. I discovered theatre, and play writing last year. It is the most amazing sensation to see ones work of art being preformed on stage in front of an audience.
What is your story, Maree?
After retiring I needed something to do and I discovered a creative writing course at the Bendigo College for further education. And it was good.
From there I went to Deakin University. I spent a year in Canada at Bishop’s University in Quebec as an exchange student. And I saw a moose.
Where do your ideas for stories come from, Maree?
Well, my book ‘Let’s go to Africa’, a book for little children, was a joint effort with my then 2 year old grand daughter Bea. She told me how it had to be!
As I am an older person I think about stories that encapsulate the issues of getting more mature. Young people don’t know what it is like to be old, but older people remember what it was like to be young.
