Fade In: 

Act I. 

Birth, Cottage Hospital, Wrexham, built and funded by coal miners,like my Grandfather.

It must have been a difficult labor. My Gran told me I had a big head. I never thought to ask if that meant I had Hydrocephalus. If so, it might explain a lot! 

Act II. 

Won a scholarship to a Convent Grammar School in Cheshire.

Had a variety of jobs, on farms, in a hospital.

Moved south to London. Worked as a temp and  sold jumble and bric-a-brac on my own stall on Portobello Road.

Met an American art student on sabbatical at the Slade.

Act III. 

Visited him in the United States, stayed and married him.

Worked in Direct Care of the elderly, the young and developmentally disabled.

Studied agriculture and animal husbandry. Took care of calves.

Act IV.

We bought and rehabbed a couple of houses.

The last one so dilapidated to begin with but looking so nice when we finished, that we couldn't bear to leave it.

Act V.

Took up writing screenplays. Entered some in competitions with mixed results.

I'm happy to be posting them on Script Revolution. Please feel free to download anytime.

(Not ready to Fade Out, just yet!)
