My name is Joy, I am 66 years old and live in Gloucester. I have three children, three step children, four grandchildren and one great grandson. Although I have written some poetry in the past I am now attending Sue's creative writing classes in an attempt at improving my writing skills. I am trying to write an account of life with my son Phillip who was born in 1963. He has a learning disability and Asperger's Syndrome and we have faced many challenges along the way. This was going to be my one and only attempt at writing anything other than poetry but I find I am getting the bug now and really enjoy exploring the different avenues creative writing produces.
