Plain Janey is my first self published ebook and I loved writing it and injecting the emotional intensity that the subject of infidelity demands. I almost feel as though I have to place myself in the mind of my characters to show the reader their actions and thoughts from an authentic perspective. That's a little tougher with some, especially where their values are not necessarily aligned with mine.
Plain Janey is so very different from my novel In Search of the Christmas Spirit which is available through Austin Macauley Publishers in 2020 but, I love them equally.
I laughed and cried throughout my stories as I stepped through the emotional whirlwind.
The thing that remains consistent within my work is the desire to provide a voice for children whether they are main characters or not. It is, I have been told, not usual for a writer especially when the book leans towards adult but, for me for any story to be complete a perspective from all is necessary.
When, after 30 years in IT, redundancy hit twice I took that as a sign and an opportunity to make a change.
I was passionate about two things, writing and empowering others. So I got myself a Personal Development Coach and embarked on a journey with two paths.
I trained as a Personal Development Coach and I set out with intent to write a novel stepping over and stamping on limited beliefs that had held me back all of these years.
I believed if I was going to help my clients walk towards their desires I had to walk my own walk and so I have and always will.
I hope you enjoy the emotional journey.
