I find that those of us who write for enjoyment, often exploit our passion to the extreme. I speak of my new-found hobby, Genealogy, born of my writing a memoir, which at present stands at over 110,000 words.

As a discard of a fragmented family, I have never known family history beyond my parents, and it is fair to respectfully add that I know very little of them also. To delve through history via one of the many ‘ancestry’ websites is a rewarding experience, especially when certificates turn up step-children of grandparents from an era when a step-child would be hidden, at least in name.

Such research might add little to a memoir, other than the ability to frame a tree in the head of the book. My joy here is to endorse the practice of family research. I sincerely believe that delivering to our own children the history of their being is both exciting and responsible.

Also dabbling in poetry, Paige produces emotive verse from romance through to environmental issues. Writing is her lifeblood, but as experienced by many writers, there’s a shortfall of financial nutrients feeding the blood.
