Behind the Scenes at Verve

Hello, Kia Ora, I’m Trish Veltman.

When I was four years old, I had four ambitions:

read every book in the world
learn everything in the world
become the youngest published author
travel everywhere in the world        

48 years later, I’m beginning to think I may have been a tad overambitious. I’ve revised my list, and added a couple of extras:

read, learn and travel as much as I can
publish my novels and poems
not keeping what I think to myself
live the best life I can despite my body’s worst intentions

Which pretty much sums up my blog – writing, opinions, and managing pain.
