Her passion for words and writing continued throughout her schooling years and into her adult life but somehow the day to day busy-ness of general life, family and work commitments got in the way and although she had started too many books to count, as time went on, she had never got around to completing or publishing any of them. That was until 2016, when a little book, begging to be shared, came into the world with an important message for humankind. This book compelled her to stop procrastinating and share it with the world, even though it took her another six months to get around to publishing it. Finally, her official author life had begun and since then she has continued on her publishing journey.
In an age of information overwhelm, she writes short, easy-to-read books that anyone of any age can quickly read and easily understand. Her goal is to inspire as many people as possible to believe in the power of having a positive mindset and grateful attitude so that they can enjoy their most joyful and meaningful lives.

Suitable for all ages, including those grown ups who might just need a gentle, calming, reminder of their own.
What we are here to learn today
Is how to stop worries from getting away
With letting us lead our happiest lives
By making us feel all anxious inside
We’re going to find out how we can stop that
So we can relax, like a big happy cat
Think of your mind like a balloon filled with thoughts
Happy, excited and all other sorts
The same way that 1+1 = 2
Our thoughts join together, it’s just what they do
Whatever we’re thinking about will expand
And if we’re not mindful, can get out of hand
Whoops, off it goes, we were fine just before
But the worry balloon is now starting to soar!
‘Oh No!’ we think, ‘This is not going well’
‘These thoughts I am thinking are
starting to swell’
Like a big worry-ball that starts to unravel
It’s hard to believe just how far it can travel
We start to go round and around in a flurry
Adding in more thoughts to make us worry
We know that it’s not a good thing to do
But most of us do it, oh yes it’s true!
Not only kids but grown ups too
So we must train our minds to think something new
