About the Author: Fabi Williams
Fabi has always had a love of books. Initially in hard times, it was a form of sanctuary that led to her discovery of fascinating and thrilling new worlds and adventures. It was these journeys that taught her the power of words and how, out of nothing, something wonderful could be created. She loved the idea of bringing her internal world to life, invoking passionate feelings, teaching life lessons and escapism, where we can lose ourselves in the moment of another place and another time. This was her motivation to begin writing her own stories.
All of her books are written with humour and would be described as ‘quirky’. Her aim is to teach children a love and value of words, to explore and enhance their own imagination and to learn to empower themselves through writing.
Fabi believes her inner child is alive and well, and is probably in control in the writing and creation of new books. In her other life she works as a registered nurse and has a Bachelor of Liberal Studies (Art) and Diploma of Health Counselling. She is also employed as wife and mother, and is busy editing her next book, when she’s not engrossed in books of self enlightenment or horror stories.
