About The Bee Writes…

Welcome to The Bee Writes…!

Guten Tag, I am Bee, author of the poetry book “Me ~ Lost & Found” and long-time blogger with a day job.


I am blogging since 2009 and have had ~ 13 or 14 ~ blogs so far. Sorry, they are all gone.


well, I don’t really know why. I suspect it’s because I tried to set myself to blog about one topic but that is not who I am. I have too many interests and want to share too much. And keeping several blogs going is just too much. Even for me ;-).

That’s how this blog and the subtitle came to be: expect nothing ~ not even the unexpected.

If you follow this blog you will find poetry, photography, the odd rant about snow in Britain, Christmas, Brexit…. , sci-fi serials, mental health tips & information, book reviews, recipes, homemaking suggestions, quotes… a little bit of everything really.

Sorry, that I’ve given up to give you regular features and be predictable. But I bet I keep you surprised :-)!

Every now and then I send out a newsletter with a summary of what happened on The Bee Writes… and updates on books & writing. To not miss a buzz sign up here:


Who is The Bee?

I am ginger, happily married to the best husband in the world, daydreamer, tea (and can you believe it) & coffee lover. Baking enthusiast, book reviewer, immigrant and poet, author, blogger….

Born many moons ago in the South of Germany I have filled many roles in my life. Some include shop assistant, social worker, volunteer.

I graduated from Katholische Fachhochschule in Muenster, Germany with a degree in Social Work in 1996 and gained experience as a self-employed social worker in social care until my mental health stopped me in my tracks in 2001. I delivered newspapers, lead a choir, managed youth groups and worked as a fishmonger.

Through all this, I have been writing poetry gradually growing into blogging about poetry, creative writing and mental health. And I immigrated to the UK long before Brexit made it a crime. Now I have decided to become the change I want to see in this world and share my journey with those who want to be the change too. YOU!

  1. Hi Bee – Neat site. Loved the Clarkson video…lol. I’m interested in your interview bit. Briefly, I’m a full time author, expatriate American living in Germany. More to follow in email. Tschüß bis dann. ;o)

  2. I’m a fellow foreigner in the U.K.–an American in Cornwall. People keep telling me we speak the same language, and I keep telling them the same thing, but none of us are entirely sure it’s true.

    1. 🙂 welcome Ellen 🙂 Nice to meet you!
