JENNY FORD / AMELIA / NANNAPOP

Biography

The author was born under the zodiac Taurus the bull, in Sydney NSW, on Anzac Day the 25th of April, 1955.

She grew up in the lovely 'park' suburb of Concord and attended North Strathfield Primary School, then Strathfield Girls' High School.

Attending Metropolitan Buiness College, she received her Diploma and later her Certificate IV in Small Business Management (BSB40401).

Jenny was sworn in as a Justice of the Peace many decades ago and still enjoys serving the community and helping others.

A tasty slice of her mischievous and adventurous childhood was spent on the family farm at Tinonee, on the banks of the Manning River in NSW. She enjoyed the carefree life and everything nature had to offer. The author appreciated her heritage in a quaint country town where time stood still, being the original cargo town before Taree was established on the opposite bank.  The peaceful rural countryside with quilted hills, grazing sheep and cows inspired her imagination....she would sit and daydream in the paddocks for hours and hours while bonding with the farm animals. 
From a very young age she enjoyed writing poetry, compositions and stories straight from the heart. "I believe each person is unique, born with their own special gifts to offer. There is beauty in everything and everyone.  It just needs to be drawn out and exposed for all to enjoy."

Jenny is a proud Australian.  She married and raised her family on the scenic Central Coast of NSW where she resides today. Her other passions include photography, dancing and power walking along beautiful beaches.  Now as a Senior she enjoys the challenge of playing Bridge and also a keen lawn bowler. Jenny's unique creative and desiging flair is utilised both inside and outside the home and evident in her writing.   She is wordly having travelled the globe extensively.  "I have experienced the many flavours of life.   These humble experiences have taught me to be grateful, to believe in myself and to never abandon my dreams.  Patience, persistence and determination always give a positive result."

Both the UK and Canada holds a special place in Jenny's heart after having lived and worked there.  What she really cherished most about Canada was the unique wildlife (seeing a bear for the first time in the wild), sharing Canada Day in Banff and The Calgary Stampede, attending an authentic pow-wow, the excitment of Halloween (she acted like a big kid) and the joy of seeing the Christmas boats and houses all lit up.  Most of all it was the captivating beauty of the rugged snow-capped mountains that sprinkled their magic all over her; and the cherished life long friends she met along the way.


Being forced into early retirement without any income, the author now lives humbly and simply.  She hopes to make a difference in the world and leave her mark behind.   What matters to her most are the little common courtesies in life that are often overlooked.... the feeling of being needed, wanted, loved but most of all, appreciated.
