About The Bee Writes…






That sums “The Bee Writes…” up pretty much. For years I have experimented with different blogging platforms, different blogs and self-hosting and non-self-hosting. But I feel it is now time to find a home for the topics I am so passionate about:

  • poets and writers
  • books
  • poetry
  • mental health issues

I have also read an awful lot about how to make a blog successful, the right headlines, SEO and what not. But whenever I tried to implement it it either did not work or things got boring. And who wants something boring?

So here I am doing it my way for all its worth.

So please sit down, 

have a mug of your favourite beverage and relax

with what “The Bee Writes…”!

About The Bee

Do you wonder where the Bee comes from?

Well, there are two electricians where I work who pop up every now and then to take care of lights and electrical lines in our shops. They are all over the place and quite funny types. They pretty soon called me “Bea” instead of the more formal “Beatrice” but well, as things go when English is not your mother tongue I understood “Bee” as it, of course, sounds exactly the same.

I felt quite flattered that I was seen by them as assiduously as a busy bee and therefore chose it as my nickname. It took me about 5 years to figure out that it was not so. I was terribly shattered :-). It did not stop me though to keep the nickname as I really love bees and would like to be a beekeeper once we can have our own house and a place where I could keep them.

Besides that: I am from Germany from the assiduous county of “Baden-Wuertemberg” somewhere in the south just beside Bavaria. I had the chance to move a little around due to personal reasons which lead me to Berlin amongst others.

In 2007 I took the plunge and made a long dream reality: I moved to Great Britain and feel at home at last. This is surely a great country, no matter what challenges it faces. Writing and reading has always been a big part of my life and I am grateful for the internet which has given me so many possibilities to express myself. To pay the bills though I am working as a sales assistant in a supermarket.

I live in the lovely county of Norfolk with the best husband (Jeremy Clarkson voice) in the world and his two wonderful kids when they do not stay with their mum. Thanks for stopping by and finding out more about me.

  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.
