I never thought I’d end up being a self-published author. Never. I thought the idea of writing a book and getting it published was one of those ideas and perhaps dreams that would never come true.

And yet – here I am. The Internet provides such endless possibilities. Such as becoming a selfpublished author. It’s amazing.

Self-expression has always been very important to me. Ask anyone who claims to know me even a little bit. I have always expressed myself in various ways. Still do, in my younger middle age.

So – fun facts about me is that I share my life with two black cats and until recently, a black dog. A new dog will enter my life, preferably sooner rather than later. I am retired from work due to mental health issues. I am quite the introvert, with extrovert needs from time to time.

the Self which wasn’t mine is the first book to be published here. What comes next, I cannot say – yet. I got plenty of ideas, and am hoping at least some of them will materialize as actual books. I have chosen e-books to rid myself of the financial trouble of printing them, although at some point I would love to see my book/s in print.

I cannot stress enough just how amazing this is. I absolutely love working with text and photography, and to finally have found a way to combine them in a way that actually works for me.. the only proper word for that is – wow.


So – I hope you enjoy my work. I know that I do. ♥
