The nut-shell Robyn: A 60-something, retired copywriter, travel agent, office manager, customer service operator, retail dog’s body and a ‘Jill’ who always gives her current ‘all trades’ attempt her best shot. She has two wonderful adult children and three of Australia’s most enchantingly beautiful Einstein-esque grandbabies. Robyn is trying desperately to finish a sociology degree, pre-mortem, volunteers in community radio and loves a geological dig. Writing saves her sanity as craft activities usually end in tantrums and foot stamping; and that’s just her teachers. Maturity does not always mean these Nana activities end well for Robyn and she’d rather walk away with dignity intact.
