I have been a Writer since the age of 15. Over the past 30 years I have had many poems, articles and stories published, a few books of poetry, an Aromatherapy Notebook and a Vegan cookbook. Even during my careers as an artist, costumier and entertainer I always found outlets for my writing, becoming the East Anglian review contributor for Heckler magazine and as reporter for the local paper. In the 90's I had a book deal on the cards but fate took a hand and my life went in a different direction - as is often the case.
I became a high school art & textiles teacher and gained 5 degrees including an M.Ed and counselling qualifications.
On 27th September 2022 my dream, as a 15 year old, to write my autobiography when I retire finally came to fruition and 'IT'S ALL ABOUT ME! and William the Conqueror's Grandfather'
was finally published in my family name of Tricia Frances deGray.
On researching my autobiography I found that my family of Gray / Grey was well documented going back over a thousand years and a number of countries.
In Summer of 2023 and after teaching it for 30 years my meditation and personal development bookSECRETGARDEN - The Journey to Find a better You
I am currently working on my final poetry book, 'Tales of Myth and Legend'
(which includes some short stories) and a series of Family History books, 'It's All About My Ancestors'
each covering around 200 years, looking at the fashions, homes, and culture of my family at the time.

I live in Norwich UK where I write downstairs in my office and create art upstairs in my studio - the perfect combination!
