Author Spotlight | Jo Raliver

From paediatric nurse to author, Jo Raliver kindly tells us of her aspirations and shares how her teacher inspired her to write.

 

 

Q - Hold old were you when you first wrote something substantial

 

A - I was in my early 40’s when I started writing about children who face challenges. I would write short stories and keep them in a folder for my eyes only.

 

Q - Did you ever have aspirations to become a writer?

 

A - I have always had aspirations to become a writer, since I was a small girl. I grew up in a village and attended a village primary school where our teacher inspired and encouraged me to write. She herself was a shy writer who had not had the courage to contact a publisher.

 

Q - What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

 

A - The best piece of advice I have ever received is “Everyone has a special talent, its knowing its inside you just waiting to be discovered”

 

Q - What advice would you give to an aspiring writer?

 

A - Please don’t be afraid to send your manuscript to a publisher. Someone will realise your potential and help you fulfil your dreams.

 

Q - What did you find easiest and hardest about writing?

 

A - I didn’t find anything hard about writing. Its such an enjoyable pleasure, the words just flow.

 

Q - Was it faster to write your book or to have it published?

 

A - Have it published.

 

Q - What was your favourite part of your book to write?

 

A - I particularly enjoyed the part that Rodney and Thea made their very special “pact”

 

Q - Do you have any plans to publish more work?

 

A - Absolutely. There are more adventures for Rodney and Thea. I have also written two other books, addressing a child with autism and a child with cerebal palsy.

 

Q - If you could review Olympia Publishers in just a few words, what would they be?

 

A - Supportive, credible and trustworthy.

 

 

Order your copy of Jo's book and join Thea and Rodney in their wonderful friendship.
