Anita Williams has been writing for over thirty years, and, during this time, has been carefully crafting stories and poems into the treasures we enjoy today. Growing up in a family of book lovers charged her with an exceptional loyalty to the written word. She loves books! Books across many genres, from her early years reading Rudyard Kipling's poetry and stories to today's preferences such as Victoria Hislop. With a passion for creativity and a desire to bring pleasure to her readers, she believes that life should be appreciated to the full, and it is not unusual to find her outdoors. Even the garden summer house becomes a haven for the odd paragraph or two, and here she will often also paint careful illustrations to enhance her written word. Multi-faceted writing is Anita's secret. She prefers to dip in and out of a series of stories and poems as 'works in progress', preferring to revisit them with new snippets she has imagined along the way, in an effort to maximise their impact. A family loving person who multi-tasks each day, Anita is thoroughly enjoying this journey of writing and picture making. Her inspiration is gathered in many ways, be it out walking, reminiscing, enjoying banter around the dining table with family and friends, or by chance encounter with something she notices whilst out socialising or travelling. Intuitive poetry and timeless stories born out of a lifetime of reading and learning; whichever element you feel compelled to encounter, this author will leave you wanting more.
