Questions –

1. How long does it take for you to write one of your books?

My two recently released books are a product of a lifetime. Everything I’ve studied and my two decades of counselling clients came together in “Liberating Inner Eve,” I almost felt that this book “wrote itself” (Mind you, it did not ‘edit itself’- considering where to place every comma and full stop and studying the exceptions within the Chicago Manual of Style felt much more challenging to me than the writing my first draft).

I loved the process of expressing in writing all that I wanted to convey to women about the importance of exploring the themes/expectations they may have internalized around their faith, the impact of historic and social pressures/restrictions on them, and sharing my most effective tools for helping them nourish their experience of self-love and personal strength.

2. When did realize that you wanted to be an author?

I can recall the joy and excitement I felt while writing poems as a little girl and being fascinated with beautiful ink-pens and attractive notepads. I saved all my pocket money for fancy diaries and journals. I kept writing ever since, and still love beautiful pens, journals, and gift books.

3. How do you balance your work schedule when you’re busy writing?

During the day you will most likely find me climbing ropes with my 3year old, getting dirty making sand pies, and taking numerous bus trips (as his current ambition is to become a bus driver). If I’m not watching the Wiggles and Pajanimals I’m seeing clients on a casual basis. I indulge in writing around 5am (it is 5.11am right now in Sydney, Australia) or when a kind family member takes my little one out for a stroll. There is no magic wand for me that could materialize the perfect work/life balance, only prioritising my time for those things that matter to me the most, cherishing the time I spend on them, letting go of the things that aren’t as important (like tiding the house), and enlisting the support of my husband in getting chores done (God bless him).

4. What are your hobbies when you’re not writing?

When I am not writing or enjoying the company of my family and friends, I love playing the organ in my local church. Being around nature also has a special place in my heart, and I love the eastern European culture and learning more about its traditions and food.

5. What does your family and close friends think of your writing?

I feel fortunate that I am surrounded by the encouragement and support of my family and friends; as Freud once implied, we tend to act bolder when we feel loved, and the support of my family and friends is very motivating for me. Saying that, my husband does like to make a joke or two about mummy typing away, oblivious to the mess around her, on those days when our house looks like a tornado has just passed through it ;-).

6. What was one of the most interesting things that you learned about yourself when you published your first book?

Publishing a book has been an unexpected ‘beginning’ for me. I thought that once I finally finished editing my book that would be it for a while- I didn’t expect that this was only the beginning of my writing journey. Through publishing a book I learned about how exciting it feels to embrace new opportunities to connect with people.

7. How many books have you written? Which one is your favorite?

I wrote two books, “Liberating Inner Eve” and “A Christian Gift.” While it is my hope that they both inspire readers, they do so in different ways. I cannot say which my favorite is as I cannot compare them with one another. “Liberating Inner Eve” is heavily grounded in research and psychological insight, and addresses the current social and historical pressures that impact on women; supporting readers in nourishing their self-love and personal strength. “A Christian Gift” is a coffee-table style gift book, with inspiring poetic reflections and serene photo illustrations.

8. What do you think makes a good story?

I enjoy characters that have a depth of personality and reflect both human weaknesses and strengths.
