First time publication for lecturer

Senior Lecturer Annie Richardson has worked at the university since 2010. Annie lectures on the subject of early childhood education and care.

Annie has recently taken up writing for pleasure again – something she hadn’t done since she was a child. Her work struck a chord with those who read it and Annie decided to share her story.
