Glenda was born In Llanelli, west Wales on the 14th of September.
1939. A happy early childhood was largely unaffected by the war,
but at the age of eleven she contracted tuberculosis and spent
virtually all of her secondary school years in hospital. At least this
gave her the opportunity to read voraciously and widely and she
later completed her formal education, ultimately achieving a first
class honours degree in English Literature from The University
of Wales. Cardiff. Glenda went on to enjoy a successful teaching
career in Penarth and served as a magistrate in Barry, South
Shortly after her retirement Glenda was diagnosed as suffering
from Parkinson’s Disease, but just as tuberculosis provided
her with the opportunity to read, so Parkinson’s gave her the
impetus to write and publish her work, initially to raise funds for
Parkinson’s UK and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Glenda continued to write poetry until the week before she died.
She had no desire to ever profit from her work, but I should be
grateful if you, the reader, would like to make a donation in her
memory to one of the following organisations, to aid them in
