It only took me 40 years or so but I'm finally comfortable and proud to be considered a writer!
After being in denial for many years, I have finally accepted what was always true. I am a writer.

Introduction
Kirsty Russell is a blogger and writer from Newcastle NSW. Last year, after a health scare, she accepted a redundancy from her public service position of nearly 20 years and is now making a new career for herself working from home. Current projects include drafting a guide to help other special needs parents based on over 10 years of personal experience and developing a podcast to further provide support to parents with kids with special needs. Her two blogs are My Home Truths (where she chronicles her life as well as her experiences as a special needs parent) and Smarter Happier (where, together with her husband, she writes about their experiences trying to make manageable and meaningful change to lead a more family centric and happier life).
