Behind the Scenes at Verve

mepicHello, 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        

Now 48 years later I’m beginning to think I may have been a tad over-ambitious.

My revised list:


  • Read, learn and travel as much as I can
  • Published my novels and poems

I do have a couple of poetry books on my bookshelf that include some of my poems, and I’ve won a few poetry competitions over the years, but 2019 is about making more happen.

And a couple of extras:

  • Keep living the best life I can despite disabling health conditions
  • Speak up about stuff

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

If you enjoy what you read, please leave me a like, comment, share or follow.
