I am from Australia and I live in the Hunter Valley in NSW. I am one of three siblings. I lived in a dysfunctional family. I had as a child a knowing. later in life, I traveled extensively and found out I had to write my books.
My books are a series of books. My Secret Self: Trial and Tribulations of an Innocent - Book 1, it was published on September 2019.
My Secret Self: Questioning Life in Marriage - Book 2, it was as published on July 2019. These books are based on my life experiences. Life wasn't easy for me however, due to these experiences I questioned life and why life was how it was. I never ruminated on my issues I wanted to know about other cultures in the world. Through my experiences, I experienced a lot of isolation. Due to this, I became a very resilience person. In my fifties, I went on my Spiritual Journey answering my calling to go to Istanbul, Turkey. I went there not knowing about the people or the culture. I followed my Spirit and just went on my Calling. Many of us have a Calling in life and never heed to it.
My books will take you on a journey. I feel life is to be experienced and through our experiences, we can follow our Calling and complete our healing for this lifetime.
I'm an Esoteric Soul Healer. My life experiences, I have prepared me to help others who have gone through a dysfunctional family. I have a deeper understanding of people and their complexities. I work on an intuitive level. I can tap into your soul's energy and bring forth the right question for you to answer, for your own personal growth as a person.
As a child and all my adult life, I've had a deeper spiritual knowing. I’ve known that life is deeper than the physical.
I’ve been told; my book is inspirational, from those who have read it. The experiences, I experienced as a child and or as an adult have not left a scar on me and or define me, today. Instead, I have become a much stronger person through my experiences.
Patterns from my family have played a big part in my life and unraveling them, has changed me to a very calm and capable person.
My mottos are:
“Self-Knowledge Heals all.” "Self-Knowledge is Power"
“Life is to be Experienced.”

I was born in the, Hunter Valley, NSW Australia.What inspired you to start working as a life coach?
I have always helped people with life directions and with clarity around their lives. I did this for free, loving this work, I decided in 2014 to make a career out of, what I love doing.How would you describe your experience of being an intuitive coach who works on a spiritual level?
I love the process that comes through as I work with my client. Being an intuitive coach you never know what will surface and it’s that unknown for my client. As I’m sitting in their energy, I feel their aura and I can bring forth the questions they need to answer for themselves. This allows them to get clear on what has been holding them back and what they can do to move forward; because, self-knowledge can heal you. The more you know about yourself the more you can get rid of stuff that’s not serving you.Which fictional character would be the most exciting to meet in real life?
I’d like to meet Tinker bell I love her feisty nature and magical ways.While living in Turkey for six years, how did you find the inspiration to write books?
It was so easy. An esoteric astrologer told me you have to write books. I was amazed with that revelation. However, I was introduced to Yesim, she helped me to pull out all my memories, through Reiki, word association, mind-mapping and mandalas. This helped me enormously to bring all to the surface. Also I started to re-live my life with those around me. This helped me to remember as well. Somehow, I was in the right place in Istanbul. I believe God sent me there to learn grammar, to be able to write. I’m dyslexic. And in Istanbul I was an English teacher because I was a native speaker. I had no grammatical skills and so I helped the students, gain confidence with speaking, and I learned the grammar. Turkish students are brilliant at grammar. And the energy of the City of Istanbul is brilliant for writers; I declare that. I was writing so easily in Istanbul and I’m not writing, so easily or as much here in Australia.What has been the most invaluable piece of advice that anyone has ever given you?
From my family when I wanted to go and live overseas ‘Do whatever makes you happy.’What is the most surprising thing you discovered while writing your book, "My Secret Self: Trials and Tribulations of an Innocent"?
I am amazed at my memory, recall and recollection of my life events. I could have written more, as there was so much information, I’d retained in Istanbul.What is your ideal setting to write?
A room with a computer, silence and or Reiki music playing.Do you usually write the 'back-of-the-book' blurbs at the back of your books or does your editor?
No I write them.How long does it usually take to write these mini summaries?
Usually, a day or two.What are your favourite themes or genres to blend together?
I write a lot of futuristic and supernatural stories, as well as my autobiography. I have lots of started stories that have not been completed. I’ve only completed various books, for my series: My Secret Self. And I write poetry. I do art as well.Tell us a little about the first book you published and some of the things you learned.
Oh my God! That has been such a learning curb and I have learned the hard way. Not knowing anyone who had written a book. There have been lots of trials and errors. Firstly, I picked the wrong editor, as he had left mistakes I’d made. So I’ve had a few type settings re-done. Plus I had to change my book’s cover. I learned that too. And you need quite a bit of money behind you, to cover the costs.Who, in your family, likes to read your books the most?
There’s a niece and a couple of cousins who love to read my books.Have any of your family members ever inspired or helped you think of book plots or characters?
No, this is a solitary road for me.What challenges did you face while publishing your first book?
Facing the missed mistakes, after it was edited and having to fix these mistakes.Is there a darker side to the book industry that not many know about? If so, what are some things you do to keep your head above the water?
The marketing I never envisioned the enormity of the marketing. This is my challenge. And there are thousands of books out there and it’s like you’re in an ocean of books and you’re swimming in this ocean with thousands of other authors, and we’re all trying to find readers for our books.
I’ve been doing my own marketing however, now I’m starting to employ some people to help me. You need a team, as you grew yourself and to I’m a Libran, I need others to bounce off. I get great ideas for marketing when I talk with my team. After returning to Australia, in 2008, I chose to live a solitary life. Now I’m opening up and socialising.If you could have been the author of any book throughout history, which one would you pick and why?
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. That book held my attention and that’s what I want my book to do; hold people’s attention so much so they can’t put my book down until they’ve read the whole book in a day or night and want more.How were you introduced to AllAuthor?
