About Mirrie Kelly:
I did everything in the correct order and was a success in the eyes of the world, until I decided that I was not sure I was looking at the world properly. The result of my realization was that I threw everything which I knew up in the air and started again.
Unlike many people who pack it all in for a dream we did not even have the dream, we were running from what we knew and had no idea where we were going. The adventure changed us as a family for ever.
I started to write once I realized that what we had done was truly amazing. Once I realized how strong we were and how much anyone out there can do.
Even now, when I am not sure if the money will get me to the end of the month, I know that the guidance given by the moral compass (which I now listen to) is worth more than the steady income I received from my corporate career.
I guess I kicked the system and not only survived but also thrived!
What inspires you to write?
Everything around me inspires me to write. I look at my children and know that I cannot say and they cannot absorb everything I want to tell them. I watch the news every morning and shout at the television, I have so much to say that I do not think that I can write it all in a life time.
Tell us about your writing process.
I write alone and no one sees or reads it until it is finished. I do not discuss what I have written. My writing is honest and soul searching but I love to work with the kids in the same room as me as they keep me smiling and stop me from ever wallowing.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just write it.
Our lives are a series of interactions and writing is an amazing way to interact with more people and to share something special. However, it does not actually alway require them to read what you have written to be affected by it. Sometimes a person can get strength to face a challenge knowing that others have faced theirs. Sometimes just telling someone that you are writing a book is enough to inspire them.
If you want to write – write, and the same applies to painting or anything else you have an urge to try. Never let the fear of judgment hold you back.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Kindle was and is my choice. It is easy and free. Writing should not be limited to those who have money or connections.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I hope that it will get easier. I love real books but I live in France and for me to read books in English the easiest way was a e reader – so I got converted. E books really are a gift which everyone should have access to both to read and publish.
What genres do you write?: Self Help, motivational, inspirational
