I haven’t at all times been essentially the most assured particular person and as a baby was desperately shy, particularly in school the place I used to be usually picked on for being the quiet one standing within the nook of the playground afraid to hitch in with the others. It was additionally a significant disaster for me within the classroom when requested to face up and communicate throughout English and French classes which regularly ending up in recitals of garbled gobbledegook, giving the remainder of the category a very good snort and making me a major goal for a gaggle of ladies who always bullied me.
My solely defensive mechanism in these days was to flee right into a world of countless daydreams which supplied me with the power to detach myself from my speedy environment and disappear right into a La La Land of romantic heroes’ and completely happy eternally endings. My faculty stories had been at all times fairly predictable… ‘ Jennifer gained’t obtain something in life until she stops her foolish daydreaming’.

All through my grownup life my self-confidence has grown in dribs and drabs, nevertheless it was only some years in the past when my life took an emotional tumble after a failed relationship that I lastly discovered my internal self by taking a danger and stepping out of my consolation zone, studying new abilities and stretching myself past my earlier capabilities.
This new discovered confidence led me to writing my first novel, ‘Jennifer Brown’s Journey’ which is basically based mostly by myself private experiences, a good way of expressing my internal ideas. I’ve at all times needed to write down a ebook that above all would make folks snort, however for steadiness I additionally needed to incorporate some poignant conditions and actual life drama that individuals might relate to.
My preliminary makes an attempt at writing a ebook solely served to spotlight the wasted durations of my training however I persevered, decided to enhance and able to be taught from my earlier errors. It was throughout that interval that I started to grasp what was actually holding me again.
