How I became a published author #2

The White Butterflies: Eurythmy & Me



 Excerpt #24


One of the biggest achievements of my life was being in Spirit and Destiny Magazine (2017). I was featured in an article, entitled: ‘My Mentor’ – which was about how Bella influenced me after her death. I love the article, because the photos are lovely. They show me singing, dancing and at the National Cat Centre, working.

The article honoured Bella and celebrated my life. I remember being nervous at the interview, but I spoke honestly about how I felt Bella had helped me. It’s amazing that so many people  have read it.

My Literary Consultant ( said that famous writers wait their whole life for a Feature article and I had achieved it relatively early on in my writing career.

I will carry on being creative until the day I die. I love where I am now and I enjoy being in the present.


In 2017 my book of poems called ‘Beauty and Truth’ was published. These are mainly poems I have written my entire life and it is amazing to have positive feedback from people. My aunt bought it on Kindle, kept it with her and loved it.

I have found writing to be a passion that I could never stop. I find that it gets edited by In-Scribe in a way that makes it professional. There is, I am sure, still an amazing journey to come, as you never know what will happen in the future.  Life is good.

I have an amazing website and thousands of followers on Facebook. I also have hundreds of friends. I got into Instagram because of my dad’s advice; my Instagram following is growing every day.

If I am not creating, I am seeing friends or going to the cinema… or feeding a cat. I believe life is what you make of it; it cannot be anything else. From a distant dream, comes a life of creativity and worth. Even if I am cleaning a litter tray, I am happy.

Eurythmy will always be a part of me, but alas I might have to let it go. I have learned to be positive by filling my life with wonderful things. And that has got to be a life worth living.

I have literally danced into this next part of my life – and am so grateful to be having such wonderful experiences.
