My name’s Amanda Martin and I am finally happy to call myself an author. Yes, I think that sits okay with me now, although I like WriterMummy better.
I come from the slash slash generation. You know, we don’t have just one career anymore, we have a plethora of them. Marketing Manager/Artist/Photographer, or Consultant/ Teacher/Web Designer; I’ve been all those people.
Right now I’m trying on the role of Writer/Mummy: juggling writing novels, editing and proofreading for other amazing authors, and looking after my two energetic and creative children. It’s challenging, tiring, exhilarating, but above all it’s fun.
I want to share my experiences so that anyone who has ever made excuses as to why they can’t write down the book lurking within them can sit back and realise, hey, if she can do it, so can I.
So come on, join me.
