"Writing, when the writer feels the work is going well, when the words are flowing and the story is a strong one, can be a godlike experience."

Margaret Mahy

Braefern (the farm name) is an ideal place for writing. I love the quiet, the views and the space, yet we are close enough to the city to not feel isolated - unless the river floods. Even this is part of our wonderful lifestyle and usually only closes the road for a few hours. The land around me and its history has had a big influence on my writing.

Spending my time between my family, the local museum, and my writing keeps me busy and makes for a rich and rewarding lifestyle.
