You can totally tell I wrote that heading myself huh? Well, I was trying to make myself sound cooler than I actually am. The truth of the matter is, I'm really not all that fabulous or exciting. I'm a regular housewife and mummy. My husband is 6"4 of sexy and we have three little minions aged 10, 7 & 6. We are also the parents of two big ass Great Dane's who kind of count as really heavy children in my opinion. Oh and we can't forget our poor tormented Cat, and our five birds.
Before I became the PJ wearing goddess I am today, I worked as a checkout chic, a hairdresser, a receptionist, a butchery assistant and a market stall holder. I made and sold jewellery, a skill my grandmother passed on to all her granddaughters, a skill I will pass on to my daughter. I was never truly happy in any of those fields. But I slugged it out because that's what adults do. After I had my second child, I fell pregnant with my third just three months later. So there was no going back to work for me. During my pregnancies I began reading, something I NEVER did before. I quickly fell in love with books, romance books to be specific.
During my last pregnancy I started thinking about writing a book of my own. I've always had an excellent imagination and I wanted to put it to use. I just didn't have the confidence to actually put pen to paper. None the less, the ideas kept swirling around in my head.
One day I was talking to my besties about wanting to become an author some day. That day changed my life forever. I couldn't ask for better, or more supportive friends than these two girls. They encouraged me to just dive in and go after my dream.
I finally started my first book at the beginning of 2013. It didn't take long to realise that writing wasn't a simple task. But I kept at it.
And kept at it.
And kept at it.
That brings us to today. I have trouble balancing my domestic goddess duties with my over-active imagination, and every now and then my husband blows a gasket and pulls me back to reality and the mountains of folding growing on my couch.
That's me really. See, nothing fabulous but a whole lot determined.
