While teaching for over twenty-five years from grade two to university students in Australia and Canada, it was difficult to find time to write. Now I’m retired, I devote my mornings to my craft. I’m editing two manuscripts at the moment and have discovered this takes way longer than writing the first draft. However, as any writer will tell you, reading is a necessity for any would be writer.
I consider myself a world reader (and writer). I value different perspectives authors offer as well as the similarities we share, but my site isn’t about every book I’ve read, only my five out of five recommendations.
As well, I’ll include some writing tips I’ve learned on my journey.
