The trials and tribulations of a frustrated, want to be, author!

About

Hi, I am an aspiring writer, I’m not really sure what that means as I write every day in some form, but I guess I would like to write for others’ pleasure and education. Currently I write for my education and pleasure, and much to my husband’s relief, to keep me busy, creative and out of the shopping centres.

My husband and I have four boys between us, two each whom are grown up and extremely lovely, good-looking young men. Both of my handsome boys are married, one with two boys (two grandsons for me) and the other with their first due in July!!

My husband’s boys are not married but there’s plenty of time, mind Simon says he doesn’t want to marry – good on him.

I have been a teacher for many decades, switching between mainstream primary education, special education, secondary maths (in the UK) and back to teaching special education in Sydney. I am passionate about my teaching and being an advocate for my students, unfortunately however, my advocacy is not always helpful, I can seem too much of a fighter and on occasions when a decision will not be favourable, especially regarding the inclusion of my children, I am not approached. So as of late I have tried to take a more moderate approach but I then feel like I’m in quicksand not moving people’s perceptions and not achieving equality for my children. Anyway that was some of the reasoning behind my first work in progress, a children’s novel about a boy named Simon who has autism, well Asperger’s, (Peter’s son, Simon, has autism but not Asperger’s) who manages to save his family and often the world with his amazing skills and also his amazing needs. I hope to educate the younger generation that we are all different and even those with a diagnosed disability can offer a lot to our community, if the community offer them the rights, respect and tolerance they are entitled to!

My other work in progress is an adult novel, I guess it is autobiographical (I heard that many authors’ first works are), it is about a woman who learns about the death of her mother over her answering machine, and the retelling of her mother’s life side by side with the narrative of the woman working through the stages of grief.  The big story in this one, however, is that she never really knew her mother, as her mum was very secretive and passed whilst the woman was living in the UK!

My passion, at the moment is my writing, my husband and our dogs, probably not in that order.

    Both books sound wonderful! Acquaintance of mine Luke Kendall has just started blogging about his journey of how to publish books. I think he calls the blog ‘atoeintheoceanofbooks’. Might be of interest, Karen Tisdell, resume writer
