Book-signing event

 

MEET THE AUTHOR

I was raised by my wonderful dad, a lecturer of English language and literature. Books were a big deal in our home. We were taught the importance of reading very early in our childhood. It stuck with me in my growing years, much more than it did my siblings. I was an avid reader as a kid and in my teen years. I carried this on into my adulthood. To me, books were an escape into a wonderful imaginary world of intrigue. For a moment you are transported into the life of those beautiful characters as you get caught up in their stories and adventure. I just love it.Big Grin  

After my first degree, which was a honourary degree in English (BA-English), I knew I wanted to be a writer. We were taught poetry, drama and playwriting. We wrote plays and staged them. It was amazing and I loved it. My imaginative and creative mind 'expanded' and I knew I would never be fulfilled if do not write books.  However, I didn't know how or when I woud do it. For a long time, I put it all behind me and focused on my career, higher education, marriage and parenthood. The only writing I did during this period was my thesis. 

I rediscovered my passion for writing when I joined Facebook a few years ago. I was doing a lot of writing on my Facebook page and I kept being told I have a gift for writing, so should write articles for a newspaper or write a book. It was amazing feedback to get from my readers. I was focused on my career at the time and didn’t want to change my career path, so I decided to create a blog and write on topics that I was passionate about, but only in my spare time. That is how this blog was 'born'.

I created my blog to provide helpful information, motivate and inspire others. (I have now included tales of the funny occurences on my daily commute to work on London trains). They are hilarious and will certainly make you laugh. Big GrinI wrote over 35 articles on challenges we face as human beings and they attracted over 41,000 visits to my blog. I never expected that and it was encouraging and incredibly empowering. Due to popular demand, I adapted my best articles into my first book; OVERCOMING LIFE'S CHALLENGES (released January 2017).  

The goal for what I do is to touch someone out there and hopefully give them the courage to do whatever it takes to deal with some of life's challenges and improve their mental health, physical and spiritual wellbeing.  The topics I usually cover include love, relationships, family, health, grief, work (dealing with unemployement and creating income streams) religion, career and current affairs. You will find an answer and some perspective on whatever you're going through or just be simply inspired. 

My second book, ENRICHING ALL WOMEN (released December 2017) is based on the Enriching All Women programme I created in June 2017, after organising a Women's Workshop. I am very passionate about Women's causes and consider myself a women's champion. The workshop was to motivate, encourage and inspire women to create income streams, which would ensure financial stability. It also covered the likely obstacles when tryinging to achieve one's dreams and possible solutions to overcome those obstacles. All these can now be found in the book.
