Strong Female

The question this week from is

Would you like to be famous? And if so, what for?

I am an author, and like any writer I would like my books to be successful. I’m not sure I could cope with the fame that went with it. I’m not very good at talking with people, and get nervous when I have people around me I do not know. I might be alright in a crowd, but when all eyes are on me, I am not so sure.

I would like to be famous for championing women in general.

Growing up in the eighties, I still remember having to fight to wear trousers to school. We had a day where all the girls wore trousers, which led to them being allowed. The only jobs available were shop work, office work or staying at home being a mum. I’m not saying motherhood is a bad thing, I loved bringing up my children, wouldn’t change it for the world, but I have never stayed at home and went to work when they were three month’s old. Mostly to do with money, but they gained a relationship with their nan.

My book ‘It Won’t Happen Again’ is about a strong female lead, my new work in progress ‘In The Dark’ is about a female, who is working as a reporter, to make my life more difficult, she is going blind.

I remember reading books, where females were strong, able to be their own person.

So, if I were to be famous, it would be for that.
