She has been greatly inspired by the gift of poetry and writing. I was gifted the gift of poetry while sitting on a park bench in Gidea park in May 2018.

I have also co authored in four Anthologies and one Poetry Anthology this brought me into contact with coaches, publishers and a host of authors. I am grateful for those friendships and continue to work on building positive support networks on Tweeter going forward. I have six published books,three best sellers and four self published.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
Tell us about your writing process.
I write from the heart and use nature and simple events to create my writing. I am Inspired by the news, travel, and world events and my family. I also use my observation on the train , on the bus and in the parks have influenced my writing.This has inspired my writing. I write both Adult and Children’s poetry and now have six books.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
No I don’t talk to them but I can be impacted in a positive way, reminding me of my own childhood memories through the eyes of the children. I have created a book on the common theme of shopping with my teenage daughter in a shopping mall.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never Give up Keep Writing down those ideas as they come to you. Always have a pen handy and write daily if you can.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My first solo book under my pen name as I did not know much about publishing in 2016.
I self published my next two adult poetry books as someone had advised me to do so and that was easy on this platform I used. My first children’s book contained images so I used a publisher.
However my next children’s book was self published and launched to best seller. I have not stopped since. My latest book was self published as it had illustrations and it was a challenge as two publishers turned me down. So I am grateful I have the experience of self publishing my own work and retaining my copyrights.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think self publishing because of the costs involved by using a traditional publisher. Also I believe there are some Indie publishers with unique packages supporting Authors at this time.
What genres do you write?: Children’s Poetry
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
