Things Used to Be Different Many Years Ago
My name is Mary Baker. I’m a writer. I have written ten books in the past fifteen years and now I’m working on the eleventh. I began writing as a girl and I used to write poems and short stories about birds
and animals, and I used to write a lot while I was at the medical college.
Then I got married and started my work at the hospital in London. I used to be a nurse and I worked at a women’s hospital in London. So, as you can see I used to live and work in the capital city, one of the busiest cities of England and now I have this quiet life in a small village in the country, where I write my stories and create my characters.
I can’t tell you I miss my city life. I used to find it very interesting but now I prefer the piece of the country where I can read a lot, think a lot and write my history book. I write historical novels now. I have always
been curious about the past and I have always tried to learn as much as possible about those who lived before us. Life used to be really different in those times. People didn’t use to travel in cars and planes. They used to tell the time by the Sun. They didn’t use to buy so much food but grew most of it themselves. Yes, life used to be different many years ago.
