I can go either of two ways.

I don’t talk, and people assume that I’m being stand offish and not taking part in any conversation. I am extremely shy, and always have been since I was a little girl. Or . . . I talk way too much, and ramble on about everything and anything. Then people could assume that I am taking control of the conversation, when I am feeling really nervous, and I am losing track of what I am trying to say.

I do tend to talk more when I know a person better, but I hope that they understand me better.

Being shy is a horrible thing, and it does take me a long time to trust someone.

That is part of being bullied, I get that. Although one thing I know for sure is that my friends are my true friends when I let them in.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. I know the feeling. Additionally, the rest of my family was always very talkative. Maybe that’s why writing became especially important to me as a medium of expression. It’s easier to get across what you would like to say when written down, uninterrupted.
