Cock Eyed Optimist

Most of you are far too young to remember the film South Pacific. It was a lifetime ago and probably the first film I ever saw on the big screen with my mum. It featured a song called “Cock Eyed Optimist” which popped into my head today when I read my book sales report on Amazon.

I’ve sold 30 Copies of “Princess Tess and Her Mess” and that makes me so excited! It means the story I wrote, and the beautiful front cover illustrated by my daughter, is sitting on someone’s coffee table or bookshelf. Even better, the story has reached thirty children. I’ve had great reviews from adults too.

All of these things make me extremely happy. I don’t write to make money, it helps, but it’s not what motivates me.

I hope it made thirty children and adults smile. I want everyone to love Princess Tess. I think she has more adventures to share.

Kids and Animals

After over a year of writing and editing, and rewriting and doubts, my book is finally published.

I began writing “Princess Tess and Her Mess” before the world knew about covid. I think my writing became more urgent as the pandemic took control of our lives. I started writing in February 2020, while still living in Colorado, and finished writing in March 2021, after moving to Italy.

The last year of my life has certainly been full of adventure! Princess Tess is a Children’s story, but my editor enjoyed it too, so I think it’s a story for all ages, especially if you’re an animal lover.

If you feel inclined to support an old “budding” writer, I’ve included links to my Amazon eBook and paperback. If you enjoy my amusing little tale, please give me a review. If you’re not a reader and just follow this old girl for fun, thanks for stopping by, and send me some positive thoughts. Stay safe everyone.
