From Jane Gilley…
‘The impulse to write hit me around 7 years of age when I wrote a poem and put it to music, later, when I was ten.
In fact, I couldn’t stop writing throughout my school years, to the point where my maths teacher asked if I wanted some paper to write on being as I wasn’t paying attention to his class – and I loved Maths. Except I loved writing more.
But life and marriage eventually took over, so I put my writing on hold until I was able to snatch up my note books and transfer them to a computer and then I was unstoppable. I pursued all kinds of writing courses and, initially, wrote newspaper and magazine articles. Then I progressed to writing children’s books and self-published all 6 books in 2008. I obtained a book signing at Waterstones with Maisie’s dream, a young girl’s novella that same year.
