Introduction to How to Keep Writing Where do you find the time to write so many books? I have heard this question asked by my peers so many times. The simple answer is that I make the time and I commit to the process. Since 2009, I committed fully to becoming a published author. Originally, … Continue reading Book Excerpt from How to Keep Writing by Denise N. Fyffe
December 2013, a month I am sure never to forget for several reasons. One of them being the alien assassins that reside in my womb; little tumors called fibroids. On a scale of 1 to 10, the pain was at 99. When it got to a 100, I prayed and blacked out. Not that I … Continue reading Fibroids Testimonial: Kicking and Screaming by Denise N. Fyffe
When females hear the word fibroids, other concepts such as cancer, pain, barren and agony comes to mind. For generations black women have been suffering more from this disease than any other women, in any other racial group. It has been surmised that one in four women have fibroids and generally it is found in … Continue reading Fibroids Testimonial: What are they and Where are they? by Denise N. Fyffe
Introduction It should be made particularly apparent that there is no separate distinction between the roles and responsibilities of a school counsellor. Seemingly, no understandable approach was identified to distinguish or separate what are roles, versus, what are responsibilities. What can be said however is that responsibilities are dependent on the type of role that … Continue reading Feature on The Jamaican Guidance Counsellor’s Handbook by Author Denise N. Fyffe
I watched a video by renowned author J.K. Rowling, and I believe that she gets what many authors, like myself, are going through.
She was speaking the Harvard University Commencement and her speech was about failure and I could tell that she lived exactly what I am now going through.
To have that similarity and to hear my thoughts from someone else is a great motivator. As such, it inspired me to share 30 posts about the 30 books, which I have published.
Then I began thinking, searching …
Over the last month, I have come to the full realization and acceptance that I am different. I cannot sit idly by, because I have been given a gift; and I won’t waste it. Every bit of information, research – everything – God has put in this head will benefit someone else.
I am going to write about it.
When I reached 25 books, my next goal was 30. But, I conquered 30 books so easily, my next target was 100 books by 2018. However, I took a one-year sabbatical. That one year turned into three. I needed to recalibrate and analyze my motives, my messages, my purpose.
So, calibration is in session.
I want to encourage someone else, to never settle for mediocrity. And remember, only you know what that level is. If you are given a gift to aim HIGH and THINK BIG, then do so.
There are many things that I can do – many abilities, talents, skills, and interests. I get bored easily; therefore, it is not in my genes to settle for just writing one book a year or writing for writing sake. Neither should you – as a writer – settle for this idle.
I encourage you, stop, think and reassess your life. It might be what you need to level you up for greatness.

Her speech was about failure and I could tell that she lived exactly what I am now going through. To have that similarity is a great motivator. As such, it has inspired me to share 30 posts about the 30 books, which I have published.
I say published, because I have written nearly twice as many, and they are sitting on my hard drive gathering virtual dust.
Over the last month, I have come to the full realisation that I am different. I am called to a higher place than others. I cannot sit idly by and watch my life go by, because I have been given a gift; and I wont waste it.

Muscle cramps are nothing new to me. Though, these recent episodes were too frequent to be ignored. These muscle contract, leg cramps or muscle cramps which seize me in my sleep, multiple times for the night, were more than a bit problematic. Every night, it feels like the devils of hell are trying to merge … Continue reading Fibroids testimonial: Muscle Cramps by Denise N. Fyffe
Suicide often occurs because someone feels trapped in a world of constant despair. Suicidal tendencies are often triggered by stress, trauma, bullying, unemployment, relationship issues, gambling problems, chemical imbalance, grief and other factors.
Denise says, “I wrote this book, after suffering from depression. I wanted to tell some of the stories, which many of us overlook, including my own. I wanted to paint a clear picture of the realities that many face in this world. Thankfully, writing aids the healing process. It provides an escape. When I look back sometimes, I see the depth of my despair and hurt. Suicide often occurs because someone feels trapped in a world of constant despair.
