My name is Margaret Holahan. I was born in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. I am the fourth child in a family of five – 3 older sisters and 1 younger brother.
I married Bill on 15 August 1987 and was widowed on 6 March 1991.
I wrote a lot of poetry as a teenager, but those poems were mostly about sports and my sporting heroes. From the age of 20 years to 27 years I did not really write much. However, on 6 March 1992, the first anniversary of my husband’s death, I wrote the poem ‘WHY’ and since then have written many poems and short stories. Now my writing is mostly therapeutic and I find it helps to write about my feelings, issues and problems.
I have started this blog so that I can share my writing with others. I hope that you find something useful here regardless of where you are at or what you’re going through.
