June Perkins indigenous author

What happens after a cyclone?
As a survivor of bullying and mental illness and a resilience author, I was interested in how June and her community survived their ordeal with coping skills and resilience. So I interviewed June to find out…

1. How do children and families recover from a natural disaster?

“A vital aspect of our recovery, immediately after the cyclone was incredible acts of spontaneous kindness from others, many who did not live in our local area. They helped us recover our goods from our cyclone torn house, gave us quilts they had personally made and sent care packs. Later we needed to repay these kind strangers as soon as we were on our feet again. This gave us a great sense of dignity.

Our children coped with the devastation by focusing on the needs of our pet guinea pigs. They found thinking of their needs, cuddling and feeding them during storms in the months and years after, empowering.

Our family connected with neighbours, friends, and extended family through stories, music, art and sport. People told their survival stories to each other, each story touching their hearts and lives.

Years later, when you met locals it was ‘ What happened to you during Yasi?’

2. What can natural disasters teach us about creating resilience?

“It’s important to keep physically and mentally healthy during the recovery process as Pam says in my book, ‘be gentle’ to each other. Everyone travels at their own pace to recovery. Patience and love are vital, including with oneself.

As nature greens itself and children and families see this physical renewal they feel their inner recovery. Observing the environment come back to life, triggers emotional and spiritual healing within. Nature is a symbol and an emblem for what human communities can achieve socially. We CAN regenerate.”

Media expert interview on living strong

MEET Helen Goltz editor extraordinaire for bMag newspaper, journalist, radio and TV programmer, publisher and author of crime, paranormal and historical fiction: Mastermind and Graveyard of the Atlantic.

Helen, a mentor of mine, interviewed me on passion, power and living strong plus my writing goals for 2015.

cropped-2015-word-press-banner1

Helen Goltz crime books

Helen and I first encountered each other in the elevator of the Arts Queensland building after submitting our grant applications in 2010.

Mine was to fund writer’s festival, Logan Writers Week

I divulged my upcoming memoir Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness about my survival of parent-teacher bullying and mental illness.
Helen requested to read Me and Her as a boutique crime publisher. She suggested I expand dramatic flashbacks into fully fleshed out chapters detailing my ‘decline and disintegration’ of a normal teacher ME to insane, crazy HER … and she offered publishing advice.

KarenTyrrell-MeAndHer-Cover-Print-530pxwIn 2012, Helen contacted me again about my upcoming book  Me and Her. This time Helen was now a radio programmer for 4BC radio. She requested a LIVE radio interview about my teacher experience with violence in schoolsHERE

Two weeks ago, Helen requested an interview on my writing and reading goals for 2015. I grabbed this chance to share my writing passion and tips for living strong!

Here’s a snippet of Helen’s interview with me …

‘Author and mental health advocate, Karen Tyrrell is a survivor and in 2015, she aims to empower and challenge readers to live strong!

My writing goal is to uplift and empower the reader with humor, empathy and intrigue; to create compelling stories that will empower and challenge readers for living strong.’

Helen lists my  award winning books Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness, and Me and Him: A Guide to Recovery for adults and Bailey Beats the Blah and STOP the Bully for children.

Recharge Yourself Published in a Magazine

stress-free-holidays

Recharge Yourself by Karen Tyrrell

WOW! South City Bulletin magazine featured my wellness article Recharge Yourself in their December Christmas issue!  Editor Wendy Millgate requested I write an article to recharge Christmas shoppers and revelers alike.

Here’s a snapshot of my Recharge Yourself article…

“Are you frantically rushing round preparing for Christmas? Frazzled by Christmas shopping, long queues, traffic jams and impossible parking?  While feverishly attending festive celebrations and organizing your own? Sound familiar?

We strive to be Super mums and dads and Super achievers trying to deliver a perfect Christmas.  Think again. Stop pressuring yourself! Christmas is a time for peace and relaxation, and most importantly a time to nurture yourself. You’ll enjoy Christmas a whole lot more if you can relax and recharge yourself.

For those managing a mental illness like myself, with a pro-active wellness plan, Christmas can trigger stress, depression and anxiety with strong feelings of loneliness and isolation. I’m bolstering myself with a toolbox of pro-active wellness strategies to fight stress and feelings of being overwhelmed.”

Recharge Yourself  by Karen Tyrrell

Recharge Yourself by Karen Tyrrell

How to Recharge Yourself over Christmas

1.    Step away. Recharge and reset. Nurture yourself with a little Me time. Relax in a warm scented bath with candles and essential oils. Indulge in a soothing, relaxing massage, restoring not only your weary body, but your over-stimulated mind, and your soul.

2.    Don’t over commit to too many events. Learn to say NO. Delegate to others in your family or workplace. Request for help.

3.    Infuse laughter and music into your Christmas festivities. A great stress reliever. Laugh out loud. Smile a lot. Fake it until you make it. Tell silly jokes. Do a merry little dance with someone you love.

4.    Exercise. The greatest stress reliever of all. Start each day with a brisk walk. Relax with stretches and yoga. Swim in cool refreshing water. Exercise lifts your mood for the whole day

5.    Enjoy simple Christmas pleasures with your friends and family. Sing Christmas carols together. Make your own personal Christmas decorations: they’re much cheaper. Delight in your neighbourhood Christmas lights.

6.    Unplug your TV, computer and phone. Go outside and commune with nature. Take a bush walk. Feed the birds. Chill out in a natural environment. Enjoy watching glorious sunsets and rolling clouds across the sky.

How to Write a KILLER Synopsis

woman-scared

How to Write a Killer synopsis www.karentyrrell.com

I set myself a gargantuan task of creating a KILLER synopsis for my humorous techno-fantasy novel for children: JOSH SUPER SPACE KID. I needed a kick-ass one pager to create buzz in the publishing world. I researched synopsis experts, scrambling through writing text books, to create that elusive KILLER synopsis.

Facebook writing buddies on Australia Writers Rock, Just Write for Kids and on my own Karen Tyrrell page offered support.
Finally these kick-ass tips rocketed back to me in the process …

How to Write a Killer Synopsis

1. Ask yourself: what is your hero’s struggles, challenges and final victory? Flaunt your hero’s dreams, fears and most importantly his voice.

2. What makes your story unique and attention grabbing? Focus on your story arc, especially major scenes and climaxes.

3. Limit your characters to 4 or 5: the hero, the sidekick or ally, the antagonist and two other characters.

4. Write in the present tense. Amp every word to the max creating an enthusiastic and enticing synopsis. Vary the construction of each sentence until the words blast off the page.

5. Start the synopsis with the inciting incident: the crisis … finish with the ending and resolution.

6. Who is the synopsis for: an agent or publisher? Ensure it’s written in the exact format described on the submission guidelines.

For the last six months, I sweated over and polished JOSH SUPER SPACE KID with the help of Beta writers from my critique group: Write Links, ready for lift-off.

**Special thanks to Alison, Ayesha, Samantha, Jacqui, June, & Jocelyn.

JOSH’s theme is aligned with my ‘resilience and hope’ author platform.

YAY! I’m presenting Write & Publish a Children’s novel Master Class with Charmaine Clancy on Jan 10 at Black Cat Books & Cafe

Published How to STOP School Bullying

stop_bullyingSchool bullying is a HUGE problem for our kids. 20% of children will experience school bullying some time.

South City Bulletin magazine interviewed me on how to STOP school bullying.
I shared my passion and expertise as an anti-bullying campaigner, author of STOP the Bully empowering novel for children, to help Kids live STRONG.

I too was a victim of school bullying. When I was a teacher I was bullied my parents at my school. I wrote Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness to raise awareness of how bullying can trigger mental illness.

logo-bg

South City Bulletin education journalist, Amanda Sheehan and editor Wendy Millgate asked me what strategies I recommend to STOP School Bullying. I shared how to change the behaviour of victims and bullies in schools, and break the bullying cycle.

How to STOP School Bullying

1. Know what bullying is so you can identify it.

2. Build your self-confidence by pursuing a hobby you are good at i.e. sport.

3. Help kids who are the victims AND help the bullies too. Give bullies consequences, counselling and positive role models.

MORE strategies are revealed in the magazine article …

Amana Sheehan’s article highlighted one particular school who’s breaking the cycle of bullying in a pro-active way, changing children’s behaviour …

YAY! Flat Buddy toured Brisbane Australia connecting with classrooms and children with disabilities.

How did Flat Buddy’s Tour come about?

Lesa Grant Feazel, significant Disabilities Teacher requested I escort Flat Buddy round Brisbane taking photos. The aim was to enrich the lives of disabled children at Lafourche Parish School Louisiana USA.

Flat Buddy is inspired by The Flat Stanley literacy Project which celebrates its 50th birthday. Read more http://www.flatstanley.com/

Kids talk about, track, and write about Flat Buddy’s character’s journey and adventures. Writing and learning  is easier, flows naturally, and becomes more creative.

I was excited when Flat Buddy arrived direct from the USA via my letterbox.  I read instructions to promote children’s literacy and education in a FUN engaging way.

For a week, Flat Buddy and I were inseparable as he posed with Australian people. Together we discovered  our heroes,  food, native animals and environment.
