Sending love to you all...


Friends, visitors and passers by of my Blog - I am truly grateful to be making a brief pit stop!!

I've had a frantic few month's, from appearing on the radio to getting reviews for 'The Curtain Twitchers of Oakley Place'.

Since publication I have also returned to student life part-time, while I study to gain the following two qualifications: Specialist Teaching and Learning Support Assistant Diploma and an Autism Awareness Diploma. Both courses are going very well - and I am also still making sure that my pen is flowing freely with new poetry.

In addition to these new strings to my bow, I have now also secured a post at a local primary school as Special Needs Teaching Assistant. I am loving every second, and it is so fantastic to see children growing in confidence and loving reading.

I am truly blessed and grateful, that I can make a difference this way too.

News on the writing front:

I have started writing the sequel of 'The Curtain Twitchers of Oakley Place'. The new book will be released in 2018. On the slate of new release will be two children's books and two new poetry collections. So keep patient and watch this space...

The third release this year a Biography titled: 'You Should Have Been Here Yesterday' is due to be released before Christmas 2017.

Well, that's it for now folks!

I'm sending you all light beams, wrapped in rainbows of LOVE.
From my heart to your heart,

Deborah xxx

We Will Remember

As an act of Remembrance for those who died at Passchendaele a 100 years to this day. Please find a second poem, taken from my forth coming War Poetry Collection: 'Remember Me With Love - Poetry in Conflict' out later this year.

Our boys.

Bodies slumped in delirium.
Beautiful, fragile brave young men.
Yesterday a farm hand,
Ploughing in the field.
Lives lost in war now.
No more, what they were then.
Compassion in their hearts,
Fighting for the cause.
Giving us their lives.
What more was their love for?

Remember Me With Love

As an act of Remembrance for those who died at Passchendaele a 100 years to this day. Please find the following a poem, taken from my forth coming War Poetry Collection: 'Remember Me With Love - Poetry in Conflict' out later this year.

 A Soldiers Love
We wait, in silence for the call. I took your letter from my pocket, and breathed each word. Your fragrance stays with me, I hold your words close to me. All around me is chaos: blood and the stench of war press us closer to the enemy. Just one more day, then we can once again live. As we go over the top, each life to give. For I shall, see your face no more. My last breath, I gave to the end of war. Copyright © 2014 Deborah M. Hodgetts
I remember all those who died and served in all Wars.
