I’ve been working with words all my career – as a teacher, writer, editor, facilitator and coach.
I have found slivers of time between work and family to write two primary school readers and three non-fiction books. My first two non-fiction books were on small business marketing before the days of social media (Promote Your Business, Talk Up Your Business) I wrote these books because I needed them when I moved from New Zealand to Australia and had to start my business all over again. My third non-fiction book is on board papers (Write to Govern).
What I love about writing is that there is always more to learn. Along my zig-zagging career, I’ve read avidly about all aspects of writing, enrolled in several writing courses and just kept on writing. I can’t imagine a life without reading and writing. That’s not to say I find writing easy; I don’t. Sometimes, the ideas flow and the structure sorts itself out, but at other times, I have trouble starting, can’t crystallise what I want to say, and delete more than I write.
