Vacen Taylor is a published author, screenwriter, playwright, an occasional artist, amateur photographer and wannabe poet. Writing works when there’s passion behind it and her stories always touch something in common or speak to the emotions in all human beings. Creating stories with richness and meaning is paramount in her storytelling. Expressing the uniqueness of self in her work using poetry and song is as much a requirement as world building with art and sculpture. All of which you will find somewhere in the Starchild Series.
I’m a happy person
Well, I like to think I’m a happy person with a zest for life and exploring the world at large. I always try to remain positive and helpful to my family, friends and the larger community. There are a few things I believe in, learning, I’m always reaching for knowledge and supporting the community in which I live and do this on a regular basis.
Childhood to adulthood
When I was in primary school I was bullied a lot. I was chubby girl for my age and I was also a daydreamer. That made me a target on two counts. I was called fat and stupid.
I can’t explain just how much it hurt to be called names and to be pushed around, but I muddled my way through. Of course, I’m much older and wiser now. The one thing I regret was not having the courage to tell an adult about the bullying at school.
As for bullying … I vehemently oppose any form of bullying. Tell somebody! Don’t put up with the behaviour like I did. Seek help from someone in authority. Talk to family about how you’re feeling. Never believe it’s your fault. And most importantly, always believe there are people who will help you. You are never alone!
