    loved to recite poetry over dinner apart from the English poets he introduced me Homer in Greek Dante in Italian and Chaucer in Middle English Sometimes we got some Goethe in German too Sadly I suffered from overload and today have an aversion to poetry and poets I was ten when I wrote my first book My love for writing only really took off when I was a teenager and had an inspirational English teacher After school I studied music and then married Luke Stubbs who was training to be an Anglican priest We lived in parishes all over the Western Cape for eighteen years before he left the church to become a publisher of theology We had three sons called Peter James and Philip I began to write when my youngest child was a baby I spent three years teaching myself the craft of writing mostly by analyzing successful writer s work When I was forty one I went into therapy This was the turning point for my writing By learning to understand my own emotions and by allowing childhood wounds to heal I found that I could focus my creative energy and start writing the way I had always wanted to I try and write 1000 words a day In 2009 Luke died from cancer We d been married 25 years and 6 days It was a very dark and sad time Now I live alone with two of my sons my dogs Isidingo she s my favourite and Spot who Philip found in a rubbish bin and my cat George he s really annoying I like being around children so I teach part time at St George s Grammar School in Mowbray I play the piano for assemblies and teach creative writing to a class of gifted
