Let me start by telling you a little about myself and then about the motivation that made me put pen to paper, or rather fingers to keyboard.
I live in Australia and am a Daughter, Wife, Mom and Granny. These four roles have moulded me into the person I am today, and whilst life hasn’t always been kind or easy, I wouldn’t change any aspects of my life (well I say that in hindsight, as of course when life throws challenges my way, I wish at the time that things were different). Having said that, I am a strong believer in the saying that “everything happens for a reason“ and I believe that everything that has happened in my life to date, has happened for a reason, and for the most, it is all now very clear to me.
I have a small but wonderful (at times dysfunctional) family. We all have those right? :-). They are my world and without each of them, my life would be incomplete.
I am also privileged to say that I have some amazing friends, both near and far. Unfortunately it’s a reality of life that some stay and some don’t, so for those that have stood by me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
As for writing a book let me take you back to when I was 18. I got about 3/4 of the way through writing a book and eagerly sent a Synopsis to a Publisher. Unfortunately the reply I received wasn’t what I was hoping for, and as an immature and petulant 18 year old, I gave up and destroyed the book.
Although on the back burner I have never given up on the idea and over the last few years I have had scenes frequently replay over in my head. They are not all scenes from my life (past or present), so what were they?
After spending a considerable amount of time trying to piece it together, I came to the conclusion (rightly or wrongly) that it was time for me to write again, so here I am.
I hope you will join me on this journey of mine, and for this, I thank you in advance.
