Ever since Jess was born I have enjoyed watching her grow into the beautiful (if not cheeky) 4 year old she has become.
Jess was and is my inspiration and the reason I decided to write a children's book, 'Jess and the Pirate Hat'
I have always believed that there is nothing more wonderful than a child's imagination and Jess never ceases to amaze me with hers.
Writing this book has allowed me to offer a glimpse into her world and share in some of her adventures.
What inspires you to write?
My 4 year old daughter inspires me to write, she is so full of life and her imagination is endless.
Tell us about your writing process.
I like to think of stories based on my daughter and her imagination, so I know what my characters will look like. Once I have my story, I work closely with my illustrator to ensure the illustrations fit the story.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never give up, get your work out there and don't let any knock backs stop you from achieving your goals.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I chose to self-publish because I knew the process would be very rewarding and I wanted to have control over how my book was going to be published. I would advise new authors to gather as much information as possible before making any decisions. Both self-publishing and traditional publishing, both have their pros and cons.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Book Publishing is changing all the time especially for indie authors. With more and more resources available everyday, I think we will see an increase in people wanting to self-publish in the future.
