Today, I found out (through a new blog I’m now following: Meeka’s Mind), that there is a an actual trailer for author, Kathryn Treat’s book, Allergic to Life: my battle for survival, courage and hope, and it’s on YouTube! This is exciting for me as I’ve followed Kathryn since my health was set back from living in a mouldy house in 2012; luckily, I’ve made some progress and I’m on my way to recovery, but along this (the most horrid part of my life so far!) pathway out of here, she has been a beacon of hope. Hope of what is possible!
So yes, I’m proud and chuffed to see Kathryn on YouTube!
Last year, at Uni (2013), I studied my second class on interview skills: and I’ve just finished an certain interview that seems to have taken an eternity to write! (Since that class!) But as Kathryn recently said to me: “Everything happens when it’s meant to.” Now, this interview is with one of my favourite authors; but I’ll leave it up to you to guess which one… Ergo, I’ve just submitted it for publication with AESSRA‘s Sensitivity Matters, Australia’s Allergy organisation. Wish me luck on getting published, xx.
