You'll find me doing most of my writing on the left edge of our bed.
I sneak away to quickly scribble down thoughts if the children are home.
I wake up in the middle of the night and early morning with ideas racing through my mind so, half asleep I write them down.
I cry into the pages sometimes and let the pen to paper do the release for me.
It's not a new thing, I have always kept journals. I can't ignore the gentle whisper's anymore that keep offering this space to share my writing. You'll see more blog posts from me, more of my thoughts, and lot's of rambles/poetry. My hope is that you can read something I have written in the years to come and say "oh thank goodness someone else feels this too".
My first book "My Feelings Matter" was an idea that came originally from wanting to create feelings flash cards. I then decided at the last minute to turn it into a book. I had created my own feeling cards at home for Hudson, my eldest son who is on the Autism Spectrum. I hand drew the illustrations and they were terrible, but he seemed to understand them. The idea was to see if he could remember to grab one off the fridge when he couldn’t talk to me but could maybe identify with a visual. This way I could know how he was feeling. At the time anything I could have done to avoid meltdowns (which were so very frequent at the time) I would have tried. I decided that this could work for other children especially those with special needs, so I set to work!
I am thrilled to have it at the stage where it is being shipped to you guys all over the world. I truly feel that it will help so many children and families be able to communicate and connect with more ease.
I am the girl who is always being goofy, loves a deep, soulful chat, cups of tea on repeat, sunshine on my skin, bare feet & no bra if I can get away with it. I am into the fifth year of running this online space, which is forever evolving. I still intend to continue expanding and changing, so please join me.
