Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written

I am a children's inspirational story writer. My first book called "Always Believe" is one in a trilogy. I am passionate about encouraging and empowering children to make their dreams a reality and raise their self worth from an early age. All children across the world need good mentors to help them find their true God given talents and abilities and guide and inspire them to their goals.

Having been a teacher for many years in the U.K. I have seen the lack of self esteem and the need for this to be resurrected in our next generation to make the children of the future believe in themselves for a better world.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?

My next book is entitled: "English or Amerikish" (Appalachian/TN style)
