What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Inspiration for the book was the passing of my brother due to brain cancer. He lived life to the full and in some ways I think this was a contributing factor to his death. I had a long to to reflect on our relationship and the guilt of not being able to do anything to help. I found Japanese haiku poetry allowed me to focus a small of time to relax and de-stress. I studied the haiku and other types of poetry as therapy to help me grieve and carry on. With these positive findings I wanted to help others in positions of pain and suffering experience moments of peace and calm. This is how the book Mindful Haiku: A Life Simplified: Poems for Busy People to Find Peace and Happiness came to life.
