Everybody has a book in them, or so it's said. But it's something else again getting it onto the page and to a place where it might be shared.

I have been writing since I was a young child. Always, my dream was to see my name on the spine of a book. Books gave me life, a dream to live by. Through their portals I could escape so easily into other worlds. Books also saved my life ... yes, really!

This is the story of my books and my journey as an author, including a very personal view of my journey through Life. I hope it will inspire and give hope to writers and readers young and old.

Getting published can be a waiting game. It's hard .. and getting harder. But then sometimes it can happen in an unexpected way and suddenly, we truly are living our dream. And we realise that it isn't after all the winning that is important, but the journey that is ours along the way.

I would love to hear from anyone who connects with what is written here. A signed copy of any of my books is available. You have only to write and ask:

A stone thrown into a pool of water creates a ripple effect, interrupting calmer waters beyond. 

So it is in Life!

This is a book borne of personal courage, compassion and experience, as the author has lived every word, thought, deed and emotion shared through these pages. She challenges readers to join her roller-coaster journey of Life, asking what they might do given the same situations. Opening her heart, she explores when bad things happen for no apparent reason – a betrayal of trust, a fragmented marriage, a life destroyed. Where is God when someone is stripped of all that is familiar, leaving them vulnerable, afraid, abandoned, alone? 

The answer can be surprising! 

Out of every Negative must come a Positive … the greater that Negative, the more that Positive must be’ – a contract made with herself years ago after a particularly bad crisis. This book represents the Positive coming out of her current battle with Cancer.

Inspiring, thought-provoking, emotive, this is a book which leads the reader through a journey of a lifetime, filled with passion, commitment, courage, and a determination to reach beyond what is … to what is possible … and beyond ...
