Monday 5th October 2015 brought a very sad ending and a scary beginning to a new journey. I retired from World Castle Publishing and set out on the path to being an Indie Author.

I would like to thank Karen Fuller of World Castle Publishing for believing in me enough to publish my work. To Maxine Horton Bringenburg, for editing my first book, Hidden. Eric R. Johnston and Jeff LaFerney, for mentoring me and giving me the confidence to become an author. Sheldon Townsend and Denise Bush, I am so grateful to you for all the hard work you put into the promoting, Hidden. I really appreciated your assistance.

My time at World Castle has taught me so much and introduced me to so many other talented authors. I’ve made some wonderful friends along the way and will never forget my time there. A huge thank you to everyone who has kept me afloat when I’ve felt down, who’ve supported me when I’ve been stuck and who’ve shown me the way forward and had fun with me along the way. There are too many of you to mention, but you know who you are. There are so many hard working people in this industry who don’t receive the recognition they deserve. I admire you all and you’ve all taught me different things, but most of all to believe in myself and be determined.

Today, I set out heading for a new horizon. Who knows where I will end up next, but when we ask the Heavens for their help, the heavens have a funny way of replying, so hop on board, step into my world and let me take you on a journey…

I see the thirst behind your eyes,

The ambition that dwells within,

Waiting to escape its confines,

It sits there trapped within.

Always looking for an outlet,

An opportunity managed your way,

For a new chapter to begin,

Keep trying, it will happen someday.

Like the rising of an established flame,

You try to supress your needs,

You do it for those around you,

But need serves to hinder your way.

Stop waiting for that day to come,

And start to make it happen,

Take your ideas out of the box,

And watch them shape your day.

Soon your exit will be illuminated,

Hard work will line your path,

Creativity will be supressed no longer,

And reward will ensue at last.

So pick up a pen and a piece of paper,

A note pad, computer, telephone,

Go do your research and preparation,

Cause one day you’ll need them no more.
