Heart Melt Creations has evolved from my love of writing.
Has anyone reading this ever discovered that they have a talent, which you didn’t think was a talent? It is just something you knew how to do?
This is what I realized about my creative writing. I would write, what I have come to call, “Kitty’s Ditty’s” whenever there was need for a heartfelt word or two. So for encouragement, for a birthday, Anniversary, wedding, or sadly when a loved one has passed away. I would take some alone time and ponder on what the person I was writing about would want me to say.
My writing was jump-started again on my sister’s birthday in July of 2016. I wanted to write something from the heart. My Mother had always had a very close relationship with my sister and I wanted to write something that captured the essence of their close Mother and Daughter relationship. The story is called “The Lovely Rose” and is available to read or purchase on this site.
Author Katrina Jadkowski – I was born 18 years after the end of World War II to a Polish Father and Irish Mother. I grew up just outside London, in a little suburb called South Croydon. I pursued my passion which was entertainment and became a professional dancer in 1986. I left my home in Surrey, England in 1988 and moved across the pond and my home is now Las Vegas, Nevada. I retired from my life as a “Showgirl” on the Las Vegas strip, many moons ago, but I never lost my passion for entertainment.
I have now been in the USA for 30 years and am always asked why I have kept my British accent? I would laughingly reply, “I have kept my accent for a reason, just haven’t figured out what the reason is?” Well, mystery solved. I am told I have the perfect accent for storytelling. Who better to narrate my Children’s tales than the Author herself!
My why: To passionately utilize my creative abilities in the pursuit of helping others.
I must confess I do like to narrate my own stories and I hope you will enjoy them too. Now as I am embarking on this new journey, I hope my stories rekindle your own childhood or for this new generation, ignite a fondness for storytelling. If I can bring a tear to your eye with sadness or joy, then I will have accomplished my goal to make your heart melt.
PURSUE, to chase, to dare to dream for more,
GROWTH, be ever-evolving and strive to change the way you were before,
LEARNING, use every resource that’s presented, who knows what life’s journey has in store?
PASSION, let it run through your veins, it comes from your very core,
DETERMINED, be the kind of person the world simply can’t ignore.
In my recent journey into the word of writing. I discovered I needed an illustrator and magically I found Valentina Iacopinelli. As an added blessing I also needed a graphic designer for my books and a composer for my audio books and Valentina just happened to have married the right fellow Andrea Baroni.
