DAY 3 – INSPIRATION AND AWE!

Our prompts for the day, made this post an easy one! I have a few absolute favourites that spring to mind instantly and I am happy to share!

Who are the writers you most admire?

As a child the only books I truly remember being in love with were the FarAway Tree collection by Enid Blyton. I loved reading when I was young and read a lot, but these kept me captivated and I read them over and over again. An absolute must read for any child today!

I am one of the millions of Harry Potter fans from around the world, who enjoyed every book that JK Rowling created, and watched every movie on release date, pure magic! Every page kept me waiting for the next, and at the end of each book, I could not wait for the release of the next addition!

I don’t often read novels, I tend to prefer non-fiction most of the time, but fortunately my mum managed to convince me to read the Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo had me hooked from the beginning and each book just got better and better. Still behind in watching the movies, but the Swedish version was on SBS a little while back and did enjoy watching that.

BUT…

The one author that inspired, motivated, gave me the courage and made me take the first step and pick up a pen and write my first book was Sandy Forster from Wildly Wealthy. A fellow Aussie who only lives and hour and half from me in beautiful Queensland, whose ‘story’ mirrored mine so much, has created a multi-million dollar business from scratch on the back of one book……How To Be Wildly Wealthy Fast!

This book is a fantastic blend of practical and metaphysical steps that help you change the way you think, feel and deal with dollars and is a must read for anyone. If Sandy can do it, so can I, and so can YOU!

Until tomorrow…….
