“I always knew I wanted to be an author. I used to write stories for my little sister to escape into. Tabu my first complete novel (finished 24 years ago) has been written as a memoir, fiction, and nonfiction resource and recently rewritten as women’s fiction, due to it’s nature, it is sitting on a shelf waiting for the right time. My other books have all been in the works over the past 26 years and seem to have all come together at once.
Having to learn to read, write and walk again was a challenge. I have to give huge thanks to my son, Nathaniel who I would not be here without. As a single mum, entrepreneur, when I suddenly become disabled, Nat stepped up. He was in year six primary school. He grew up listening to Roy the Rhino stories, I am glad they will be back out in the world this year.
Releasing #AbilityCorp has given me so much joy, when on tour in USA, I was fortunate enough to talk with youth and physically and mentally challenged community members and their carers. More than once I was thanked for creating heroes that were disabled. It was really important for me to have seen and unseen physical and mental disabilities represented. I hope the series not only starts conversations, I hope the books also provide resources whilst offering entertainment, education and escape.”
