Glynis is an award-winning writer and children’s author and cannot imagine a world without little people to inspire and bless her. She has lived in Drayton with her husband, for 30 years. Glynis got her first break and her real start in writing professionally writing a weekly column – Sugar and Spice – in the Drayton Community News. She wrote that column for over 11 years. She was a private tutor for over 18 years but recently had to give that up because she needed her classroom converted to a ‘granddad’ apartment for her 89 year old father. Glynis misses her students but still manages to surround herself with children at every opportunity. She loves to collect story-fodder from the everyday.
“It’s amazing where and when inspiration comes,” says Glynis. Writing for children is her first love and she also writes devotions, short stories, blog posts and rejoices daily because she is constantly reminded about God’s amazing grace and His unconditional love.
