Mythil's Secret hit the local bookshops in July last year. It is my first published book. Although I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, there's nothing like having a book published to give you that extra oomph, that squaring of the shoulders, when someone asks you what you do and you say "I'm a writer".
Then I read a Reader's Digest article in which Jeffrey Archer discusses briefly whether someone is a writer or a story teller.
Hmmm. Which am I? Am I both? After all, Mythil's Secret is written (it took me about 8 years to write!) and it's a story for pre-teens.
I enjoy writing but I enjoy telling stories more. Also I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm not a writer of the 'WOW' category. So... from now on I think I will go with the title story teller.
Er... But how will that sound?
"So what do you do?"
"I tell stories."
