Beverley Asmus cannot recall a time when she hasn’t been writing. Encouraged by her parents to pursue her love for the written word, her writing career began at an early age with short stories published in children’s magazines.
Further encouraged by her mother to keep a journal, she became fascinated by the distinction between private and public faces and the process of psychological development.
This has carried over into her present writing where she loves to explore the personal growth of characters faced with challenging circumstances.
Beverley has a Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) with majors in Comparative History and Literature as well as Film Studies. She also has post graduate qualifications in teaching Adult Literacy and Numeracy.
Carindale Writers’ Group was established by Beverley in 2000 and she was the facilitator for over a decade.
