“A Girl’s Guide To Fairy Tales,” by Laurey Buckland has a great quote in it about meeting new people:
“They say never judge a book by its cover and that you only have seven seconds to make a good impression. My time’s nearly up, but if you are still reading then all I will say is the synopsis can never tell you the whole tale – you have to turn the pages to discover not everything is fiction.”
I have layers and layers of love for that quote and thought it would be a perfect start in introducing myself to you.
I quit my job at the end of 2010 to pursue my creative dreams. I desperately wanted to become an author, and to fulfill a life long desire of learning to play the piano. Leaving my sales and marketing life as a National Brand Manager was hard, and I found that moving from such a corporate space into such a creative one did not happen without a few bumps in the road. But this road is the happiest path I have ever taken and I don’t regret it for one second.
I have now completed my first novel, ‘Something Pink’, for which I am looking for a publisher, and am currently working on my second book. I have also reached Gr 6 in ABRSM piano and am helping teaching part time at my music studio, and imparting musical knowledge to a handful of my very many nieces and nephews too.
Other than an obvious love for shoes, the colour pink, and Husband, there are many things that keep me busy on a day-to-day basis, but, to paraphrase Lauren Buckland, you are going to have to turn the pages to discover the full story. I hope you enjoy my blog.
Love, lust and fairy-star-dust
