About me: Rachel McAlpine

Me and my sisters about 70 years ago. I’m Number 3, the daydreamer.

Who am I? What am I?

Those questions puzzle me as I creep towards my 80th year. Like everyone I’m largely the product of my family background and my genes. Phenomenal luck has figured in my making.

I’ll never write a memoir, but my current blog posts feature many casual poems about my personal experience of life, and so far it’s proving good fun.

Writing is what I’ve done all my life. I’m a writer, there’s no escaping that. This is now my principal web site and you will find books to buy as well as plenty to read. I love drawing and taking photographs, preferably odd ones.

Talk to me! You know I like it.
