My Creative Journey

My creative journey began when I was a child. I was always getting into trouble for day-dreaming or writing stories when I should have been focusing on school work. At home I used to write and direct plays with my friends.

My love of creative writing stems from my love of books, and I am a big believer in the mantra that the best way to become a good creative writer, is to be a dedicated reader. The humble book has extraordinary powers. It has the power to expand your vocabulary, and develop and inspire your imagination.

Over the years I have developed a wide reading list. Among my favourite books are: Anne of Green Gables, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Lord of the Rings, and the intriguing exploits of the consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. That reading list has now grown to include a plethora of international, and home-grown Aussie writers such as: Josephine Cox, Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes, A. S. Byatt, Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson, Kate Forsyth, Sara Foster, and the list continues…

  1. We have so much in common, in that, you’ve named most of my favourite childhood authors. I include Enid Blyton in the list. I also found the Harry Potter series riveting! I enjoy a number of genres so Wilbur Smith, Jung Chang, Taylor Caldwell and the Bard are among my list as well.
    I will admit, my mother would pull me up for daydreaming as well and in fact, she once took me to get my hearing checked as I would never hear her calling me whenever I was immersed in a book. ?

  2. Congratulations Diana, your website, love of story writing, poems and book/s. Your gifted in writing, and talented many ways. Your passion for writing is a new chapter of your life, on display for all the world to see. You’ve worked hard to achieve this. Great work!!
