Who would have thought that a sudden break from work would rekindle a talent for writing and creating illustrations? This is exactly what happened to our author, Anita Williams. Forever the optimist, and a natural positive thinker, Anita didn’t want to while away the hours at home doing nothing. Her busy work life as a Sales Director had kept her very focussed and she thoroughly enjoys routine and purpose. Being so busy though, had kept her hobby on the shelf, except for weekends and the odd evening. Whilst recuperating, Anita sat and read through snippets of stories and poetry she had written over the past 30 years, and it occurred to her that she could actually do something positive with them and what’s more, assist with fundraising for charities in the process!
These treasures have been carefully saved and re-crafted and a mix of topics is now emerging. It comes as no surprise that her very first poetry book to be published was entitled ‘Knickerbocker Glory.’ Flipping to the Poetry tab will enlighten you further about this charming book which is brim full of poems about life and it’s experiences. This book was published to test the impact of Anita’s work… she loved it, but would her readers? It didn’t take long for the compliments to come flooding in…(check the blog spot to see the latest five star review from Dakota Douglas) so now, with a new found energy to persist, a writing plan was born!
In various places on this web site, you can read about the charity fundraising books, “Poetry Giving” and “Severn Thoughts” or why not check out the children’s collection emerging? The Annie and Tom series is well under way with “Annie’s Buttons” currently available in paperback on on ibooks. “El Roboto“ is next on the list, so watch out when a bored little robot finds a sombrero which takes him on a wonderful adventure.
Soon to be published is the long awaited “The very Great Britain in Poetry” and we do hope you enjoy this poetry collection which celebrates the traditions and attractions of Great Britain.
Anita’s experience of long term illness and recovery has helped her to refocus and she believes that life is here to be embraced; appreciated and enjoyed. She sincerely wants her readers to feel that she is providing an easy read, unencumbered by too much intensity, and delighted that some charities are also going to benefit.
Thank you so much for reading. Hope we made you smile today. 🙂
