The Cubby House KitchenMay 10th, 2023
What was the inspiration for your book?
When I go to work at Kinder, I know children learn through play. Simple items such as a pot and a ladle from an op shop and some gathered leaves and seed pods can turn into soup for a restaurant. This turns into accomplishment and pride in child. I wanted to show everyone how easy it can be to find happiness in the things that sometimes can be taken for granted.
When do you write?
I scribble ideas on pieces of paper at random times of the day. I may be painting with watercolours or washing dishes and inspiration will pop into my head. I have a folder that I try and collate all these ideas into ( which is messy ) and then I like to type away later in the evenings.
Do you have a favourite place to write?
I prefer working at the kitchen table. I don’t have a study so it is my best option at the moment.
What would be the title of your memoirs?
Well, to be honest, my comfort area is writing fiction so I don’t think my memoirs are on my to do list!
What is next for you?
I am looking forward to seeing children take my book from the library shelf and listen to the words and be curious about the illustrations. I will continue to add to my ideas folder and make time to write my stories and bring colour to my sketches. Maybe one day I will go through the process of having another book published again!
