Who Is Joesy Knibbs?
I have been fascinated with stories ever since I was a child, I would get lost in books and pretend I was the characters and living their stories. The stories inspired my imagination and allowed me to be creative using mine.
This is a hard question to answer as I have had many over the years. I have loved J.R Tolkien, C S Lewis, J K Rowling, May Gibbs, Roald Dahl, and now these days I am not reading as much , but when I do I like Melissa Marr and Stephanie Meyers. I think I like these authors because their stories are outside of the normal life we live today. Anything is possible within the storyline , even things I wouldn’t ever think of, so I am able to step into the characters to feel what they feel and stand in their shoes for awhile.
My favourite food is chocolate or ice cream.
When I am not writing I like to spend time with my family watching my grandsons play football or being creative with my granddaughters.
As a child I wanted to be a Dancer or a singer.
I think what makes a good story is the ability to take the reader to another place and inspire their creativity and imagination even for a little while.
7. What was one of the most surprising things you learned from writing your book?
The most surprising things for me was to see what my imagination had created and to turn it into reality. It was like I made it come alive.
As a child I think it was just a gift that I had and taken it for granted. It wasn’t until I came to Author Academy that I became aware of my gift. Meeting Sue Kennedy and the other authors gave me the space and feedback to recognise the gift in my stories, and that is what made me realise that I wanted to be a writer.
Once I believe in the idea that my stories are something worth reading it takes about a year.
At the moment I am playing around with ideas and haven’t decided on the subject of my next book yet.
I have always enjoyed writing and reading the written word. Riding the Rainbow. is my first book. It is written over many years and spans two centuries. With time, there is progress and change but the essence of the message in the book remains unchanged with time and will continue to do so.
There will always be an element of risk in pregnancy and childbirth.
There will always be families who have been affected by the shock of disability.
