      • When readers get in touch to say things like : " I love this book. It touched my heart" and another " This book helped heal my soul". Having that impact ... having my words touch the heart of another living being... that is what success looks like to me....

      • My mother inspired me to write and encouraged me at an early age. She wrote poetry. But it was also her way of keeping me occupied after school, while she was away at work. I have been writing ever since but have only recently been "pushed to publish" my first book

      • Keep pen and paper (or whatever writing medium you prefer) easily accessible, especially at your bedside, so as to ink it when you think it.

      • Yes. I overcome it by channeling my energy into some other creative project. I love drawing and crafting among other things. Some pieces still grace the tabletops and walls of my home but many have been given to loved ones as gifts.
