An adventure story for us is all about having that dreamy, imaginative, and creative mind, and so, we are curious to know about your inspiration to write a story as such. Who and what inspired you?
I was inspired to write because my mum has written two children’s books, I wrote short stories for my children when they were younger that I never published.
Writing books is a passion and a hobby that I love doing in my spare time when I am not doing my full-time job. My ideas and imagination constantly run away with me blowing my mind away, with me looking forward to other people enjoying reading the unpredictable twists and turns in my stories. Of course, with its dramatic uncertain, happy, different, sad endings and much more for other people to get as much as a buzz out of reading it as much as I did writing it.
How many books have you written and what genre are you most fond of writing about?
I have written three books up to now. My first book is called, “In a Quarter Of A Second And The Glowing Rings”. I love to write many different genres to share a variety of different books that I write for different ages to enjoy reading.
How did you get into writing?
My children always said how much they loved the stories I had written, and my husband has always said that I have a talent for writing. I thought that everyone found it easy to write books, I soon found out that they didn’t. It was then that I realized that I do have a talent that I enjoy doing. This is where my writing story began. But apart from all that, the push from my mum writing her books inspired me as well.
What are your hobbies aside from writing?
I love to go swimming, walking, spending time with family and friends, music, films, writing, reading, ice skating, soaps on the box, holidays, and going in my hot tub in my garden.
