A Bit About Me
A three-year journey to find my normal day.
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING BAD ENOUGH IT CAN BE YOURS
They say life is short and to follow your dreams. So, in the summer of 2019, I did exactly that and started writing Just a Normal Day. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the direction my writing journey would take me, or that my life would dramatically change (for the better).
A year into writing, I left a dead-end job in Ottawa, and moved an hour south to the small town of Prescott. I bravely endured more rounds of COVID lockdowns, continued to write, briefly drove a school bus, did a stint at the Brockville Walmart (one of the best employers ever!), kept on writing, and seven drafts and too many editing challenges later, Just a Normal Day was, WHEW!, finally ready for the printer. Without a doubt the hardest, and most rewarding, experience of my life.
Just a Normal Day is now available on Amazon and in many Ottawa and Peterborough area bookstores and bars, along with Eastern Ontario Public Libraries. And that's not even the life-changing part.
That part is where I am today. Yes, I am a published author, one heck of an achievement, but more importantly, I have found my true calling. I am writing my next book, Tara, based on my school bus experience, developing a sequel to Just a Normal Day, and teaching writing and helping aspiring writers/authors achieve their goals and dreams.
Mark Twain said, "Write What You Know".
Well, I would like to add to that.
"Live What You Know."
Live your "normal day" and be true to yourself and never let anyone take that away!
