The process of writing a book was very liberating for me. I became so enamored with the writing process, which took four years, that I began teaching writing. I started teaching at Synergy Creative community, an organization for people who have experienced mental health issues. From there I moved to working in Evolution Arts Centre in Brighton where I taught short story writing and poetry for a couple of years. I started teaching home educated kids for a couple of years too and then, when I was doing 1-1 individual needs work with a young autistics boy I began to realise the importance of writing as an extraordinary communication tool, something that transcends many difficulties that people experience.
