A few of you have been asking why I sign off with the phrase hearts and kisses. Well, here I am to fill you in.
It all came about when I was at high school, I used to write adventure and noir stories in the safety of the library (where I sneakily ate my lunch – naughty, naughty ? )
Well one day after my friends came to join me and I had finished yet another rough book full of writing they asked me how I would sign it. At that point we started scrawling lots of fancy calligraphy of our names. Funnily enough I came up with my actual book signature, which encompassed a heart over they ‘I’ as it was very cool back then to have every ‘I’ dotted with a heart instead of the boring dot and beneath my signature a ‘x’ for a kiss. Why a kiss? I have no idea, probably because I loved and still do love books very much. But also, because I pour my heart into them. That is the way I communicate with you, the reader. So, hearts and kisses are a symbolism from my author signature as I cannot sign every blog by hand. It is my way of showing you that I am the one here, writing my own blogs and news. When you read this, you know that I as an author am speaking directly to you.
Thanks so much for tuning in.
