About

Behind the Author

Despite my deep love for books, I had never thought of writing one. Then after a rather traumatic incident in my life something wonderful happened. I discovered healing through writing. It became one of many magical tools that helped me break free from a difficult time.


After I had my second baby, I was blessed with a second chance at life, but as one of many side affect of a long illness, I struggled bonding with my baby. Then one day while reminiscing the carefree days of my childhood I realised how storytime every night with my dad was one of my favourite memories and how it had helped to create such a strong bond between us.


My dad used to make up stories on the spot and I was always fascinated by how he could do that. I assumed it was some sort of a special power my dad had. Sometimes he would fall asleep and I would poke his nose to wake him up so he could finish the story (I know, I know; I should have let the poor man sleep). I loved my storytime with my dad and, even though it didn't last too long, it was enough to make me feel so very loved and showed me how important I was to him.


When I started reading, my mum handed me a storybook and told me what joy I could get out of reading. That was it; I was hooked. I was off with my storybooks and my imagination. I fell in love with books.


For those of us who don't have my dad's special powers, the ability to come up with a bedtime story on the spot, we have got books. For me, storytime a way of communicating unconditional love between a child and a parent. When I read a book to my kids they know that they have my full attention and, despite how busy or distracted mummy has been during the day, they have her now. I am all theirs and they are all mine.


Reading sparks their imagination and stirs their emotions. They are either completely silent during the reading, and I can tell from their tiny little faces that they have been transported into the pages of the book (which is a truly magical thing to see), or they shriek, tickle, giggle and even scream through a story and it fills my heart with joy.


To me, storytime is much more than storytime; it's my haven and most of all I get to snuggle up with the people I love the most in the world.


Reading brings me happiness and writing brings me healing. My wish is, through my writing, for others to experience this feeling too.
