About the Author

I am a Mother and best friend to three girls. I truly love my life and every person who has ever touched it with unconditional love, and I am grateful for all their support in my endeavours. I am now a Grandmother and I am sure inspiration will come for some children's stories!
I have a website for publishing my writing and poetry. The web link is http://www.stephanie-fletcher.co.uk
I started writing seriously after having a traumatic event in my life resulting in a nervous breakdown to boot. My physical and mental health suffered greatly and now several years later, hand on heart, I can honestly say I am not the self-driven OCD perfectionist I was before.
I had a spiritual enlightenment, counselling, and time, lots of time on my hands. I could have quit, and sank deeper into depression but I didn't. I am lucky enough to have three wonderful caring and considerate daughters who witnessed my decent into hell and back, and a family who never left my side. I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and hit life head on again like the Taurean bull I am.
I have always written a journal of sorts, spasmodically, and the days of staring into thin air became times of inspiration. At first I was scared to show others my work. The last thing I needed was criticism that cuts you to the soul. I needn't have worried, only but a few people gave me critique that knocked my confidence and I began to grow as a writer.
I am the first to admit I am not very well educated, only secondary school but I returned to college at forty, did a creative writing course and gained a certificate in counselling skills. I read a lot, anything and everything and I take notes everywhere, for use later in my work. I collect idioms and sayings, inspirational quotes etc and they all help. A voice recorder is handy for those night-time ideas and I also read my work out loud, recording them and then playing back, as it is easier to see where something doesn't work. I like to do my original work long hand so I have a lot of A5 notebooks needing attention.
Writing is never dull, or a job, I enjoy every day I spend writing and often surprise myself at what comes out. I have now finished my first Novel, called 'Time Tells Tales', a synopsis is on my website and it is available as an e-book on Smashwords and Amazon. I have three collections of poetry and two novella length stories, one of which is free, so go help yourself to a copy!
