I am Debbie Milner, a modern-day poet, storyteller and author of Poems to Please and Grey Days in Naples, my second Novella. Now with a writing course behind me and lots of creative thinking and encouraging words. My decision is that having great support is very important. Amy was my character, who in 1977 goes to be an Au-pair in a very different time from the times we live in now and the era I grew up in. I was born in 1960 and I grew up in a leafy suburb of Surrey. My favourite subject was Anthology at school, story writing and also a love of poems. My first poem was published in a book in 1995, called Growing Up Edited by Andrew Head and called Teen Girl Blues by Deborah Milner. I mainly write love and nature poems. After my poem Coronavirus Days, was published in the Hailsham Festival Anthology in 2020, I set about writing Poems to Please, which after ten months, has been published in 2021 on Amazon. Some are in rhyme and some are not, but I hope these modern poems including Lost my glasses,Again!, in a simple and effective way, will make you feel positive and some will make you feel joy. Poems to Please has enjoyed great promotions with 'shoutouts' throughout the day on local radio. I have also followed this with two radio interviews about the book. I have to date had over ten poems published in publications of a What's On Guide and recently The Beckindale Poetry Journal to name but two. I had a new exciting time working with a lady in America to publish my poem book on Audible. I now prefer to read my own poems, reading one a week on my local FM radio station with plans to follow this up on YouTube after this years Hailsham Festival. Before that, I wrote a very raw Novella about being a starstruck teenager in the 1970s. I hope everyone enjoys my Grey Days in Naples and finds something to make them smile. It just so happens that I did travel to Naples about that time too! I write with a local group and enter poetry contests and before coronavirus, I helped with a little local news guide on my local Hailsham FM radio station. Walking in fields by the sea with my little dog is also a love of mine along with family and friends and popular music.Read more Read less
