Welcome the winner of Paragraphs of Power August 2012 Jacoba Dorothy.

Please welcome the winner of Paragraphs Of Power contest for August 2012, author Jacoba Dorothy.

Hi, a little bit about myself.
I’m the mother of two adorable boys. Who make me smile every day, even on days when they make me cranky.
I live in Australia’s bush capital, where the weather is all kinds of crazy. From snow to sunshine to fog to gale force winds.  But I love it and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
I work part time as a teacher to children who have English as and additional language and aiding others with their literacy skills.
I wrote my trilogy just on three years ago, not long after the birth of my second child. I found myself at home caring for him and needing something else to fill the void, so I thought I’d give writing a go.
I’d always wanted to write a book, and have been an avid reader for many years. Reflections is that ‘go’ and three years down the track I feel very privileged to be getting it published by Taylor Street this year.
I love chocolate, wearing pyjamas and spending time with family and friends. And I’m an addicted to reading on my kindle and chatting on Facebook and emailing my overseas friends. Much to my husband’s annoyance. LOL
