Inch by Inch, it’s a cinch

  blurb grab


We all know nothing in life is simple, least of all a cinch, but this new mantra is serving me well. If I didn’t know any better I might think there is a higher force at hand directing me on its own path as I never quite know which part of this process is going to come next. So I have allowed myself to go with the flow and the result is in the form of an e-book. Go figure! Most importantly I am taking baby steps and celebrating small achievements one by one.

I am happy this way as it’s an affordable option and since I am not aiming to forge a career as a famous writer/illustrator (or give up my day job), it is a cheap and easy platform for my story to unfold. I am just an amateur writer and illustrator in this field, however sought the input and feedback of many a wordsmith, teacher, critic and loved one before reaching this final stage. It’s one of many stories in my heart to be told and I just hope I don’t wait another twelve years before launching into another project!

Blown Away

Like the Brussels Sprouts and Turnips in my story we can sometimes get blown away by life! I have to admit that this publishing ‘journey’ has had its ups and downs but we can choose to focus on the dark clouds or rise above them and wait for the rainbow to appear. Regardless of the bumps along the way there is so much I have learned and so much more I am yet to learn. For every cloud has a silver lining and there are more opportunities out there! Very Cliché I know…

I’m also blown away by the strength, courage and tenacity of our Olympians. Their dedication to their goals is truly inspiring.
