I Really *Am* an Author…

8 Sep

I started writing my first book, ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, four years ago, next month. Naively, I thought it would be a one-off. πŸ™‚

Eleven titles later, it’s still a nice feeling to be *reminded*, to have *concrete evidence*, that I *am* an author.

So, how proud I was when I visited Kogarah Library some months ago, to find my books on their shelves.

There, I knew it! IΒ  really *am* an author. πŸ™‚

Guess who?

    There hasn’t really been any doubt for a long time that you’re an author Margaret. I could do with getting my books on the shelves of the local library but the last lot went missing I think.

    I am an author, but have not had that experience. Congratulations to you. I can imagine it must be amazing πŸ™‚

      I can recommend it πŸ™‚ I have been lucky enough to have some of my titles on offer in three major libraries in Sydney: Kogarah, Sutherland and Hurstville.
      Thanks for your congratulations πŸ™‚
      Best wishes for your success πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Debbie πŸ™‚ It takes time, doesn’t it?

        It certainly does! I think a lot gets sorted out in our heads before it hits the paper. More than we realise!

    Yes, Debbie, I do some of my thinking while I’m swimming or walking. I think it helps.
