Having come from a teaching background, she takes creative writing classes and enjoys visiting schools, universities and clubs to talk about writing and books. She encourages beginner writers of all ages to put their thoughts down on paper(aka computer) and is happy to show them how to shape these ideas into interesting prose.
In 'Mentoring Your Memoir' she shows us how to document our own life histories. This guide offers a practical and stimulating approach that will lead you through the creative process from research, structure, crafting, beginning and endings, to controversial issues and publishing. As well as offering practical hints for both experienced and novice writers, Goldie writes about her own early years and provides the reader with many examples of how these influenced her later work.
My latest books for young readers include the YA 'Dessi's Romance' and for middle grade readers: eSide: A Journey Through Cyberspace.
