You may or may not know this about me, but I am a writing/book coach who has loved writing and reading since before I could even comprehend my love for the written word. Sounds cuckoo, I know. I am quirky, what can I say?
I really failed to grasp the depth of my passion for writing until my twenties. Before then, I felt what I like to describe as a gentle nudge, yet I struggled to discern what it meant.

As an entrepreneur and mom of three, I’m not proud to admit that I’m always busy and constantly in a rush.
I think it is in my nature to be in a hurry though – ever since I was little, I’ve been one of those people on a mission to get from point A to point B. My walk is more of a trot and it would be out of character for me to take a casual stroll or go window shopping.
I find it REALLY hard to slowwww down.
