JENKINTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For many people who hope to become a published author, self-discipline and motivation are two critical components. Dreams are achievable and can emerge at any age or stage in our lives.
Frances Webb is a retired teacher who taught English as a second language nearly 20 years. She recently became the published author of two thought provoking novels: Innocence and Gold Dust and Come to a Memory.
“Both books are historical novels, a genre that I was not very well-versed in,” says Frances. “It took me over 10 years of methodical research and the pleasure of traveling to Turkey to do extensive research for Innocence and Gold Dust where the novel takes place. I literally submerged myself in the Roman culture, captivated by their statues and ruins. I gained an in-depth knowledge of their rich culture, which enriched my own life.”
Frances recognized early in childhood how deeply she gravitated toward grammar and her fondness for reading, particularly intrigued by the esteemed writings of George Elliot. At age twelve, she wrote a short story that profoundly touched her mother. That is when Frances became convinced to pursue her calling.
“If one has a deep yearning to write, my advice is to follow through and stay true to yourself,” says Frances. “My hope is to encourage aspiring writers to set aside at least an hour a day to hone your skills and not allow distractions to sidetrack you from writing.”
Frances is currently at work on her third book entitled Short Joy for Alma Hedman about a culture clash between a teacher and her students that uncovers powerful life lessons.
“When I decided to compose my first two novels basically I had very little historical knowledge, but my unwavering determination and inquisitive nature inspired me to learn,” says Frances. “It’s not about writing what you know but what you’re curious about, and it’s imperative that they not let the business of living keep them from following their hopes and dreams.”
