If you follow me on WordPress, thank you so much. But please find me on Instagrams for updates on projects, life stories snd my amazing family.
I am excited to announce I have started working on my next book! No spoilers, no big give away hints, but I will share it is an emotional fiction, modern story about generational trauma, and the journey of one woman finding her voice, reclaiming her power and breaking the mirror her family has chased her with for years and years. A mirror holds your image captive if kept in the darkness for too long. The only thing you can sometimes do, if pushed to the edge is break the mirror, and shatter history down to brittle pieces of dust. After the dust settles, will she finally walk into the streets of Edinburgh, and start living her life, forgive and forget? Can she shake away the ghosts of her family? That’s what you’ll find out, in my next book.
Mental health has been such an important theme for me since the pandemic, helping me reconnect to what actually matters, and giving me the courage to speak out, reach out, and write. This book is very much aligned with the trauma emotionally abusive family members inflict on each other, and in particular the last resort of cutting out someone dear to you, who continues to make you small, make you fear, make you doubt your every move. These relationships are swept under the rug far more than they are spoken about. I hope to bring to light these issues, and make them relevant in our everyday conscience.
Happy to send the first chapters to publishers and agents interested in publishing.

a poem by Juliana Philippi
As a hurricane batters Louisiana and moves up north, fires rage in the West Coast.
Refugees plea for help and mercy across the ocean, and by our back door.
Dying children invade the infirmaries on every corner of the Globe.
Where does it leave us, the young and the eager, the ambitious with no Covid fever?
It feels like defeat, sadness, and a lack of excitement as we wake up in the morning. No glory, no promotion, no famous contract to boast of.
Yet, with the cup of black coffee on my lap, I take a deep breath, and watch the bees zoom past,
my flowers bloom,
the sun shine, and the sky loom, high, high above me.
Humbled is the word.
The World has finally begun to lift the veil of richness, or category of First, Second, or Third World tier…
Rubbish and in the bin that goes now.
We are just One world, together now.
We will fall or rise, together, moving forward.
Humbled, but honored, it is our time to build our new motto.
What will it look like, who will come ahead?
All I really want, is to just say,
“I helped make it heard”
I have just had my first story/novel published on the Readict platform! Download the app from your smartphone and enjoy.
