Childhood Memories at Twilight shows the turbulent relationship between the author and her mother where her siblings were favoured and her emotional journey to become who she is today.

This is a story of a feisty young girl trying to overcome being belittled and bullied, struggling to get out of her mother’s clutches and be independent through education.

She managed to get a degree in Economic Sciences and met her boyfriend who is now her husband of 34 years. She then took a risk and left her country to be with her boyfriend in Antigua where she learnt to sail. Coming from a landlocked country this was very frightening for her because she can’t swim! She got married 18 months later and they moved to England. Sailing became part of her life as her husband was a sailor. She managed to win 3 cups from her Royal Yacht Club Logs.
