In 2009 Lavinia's eldest daughter, Erin, was getting bullied at her new school. She would often come home and cry to Lavinia. One day she asked Lavinia if she would write her a story.
One night Lavinia went to bed and had a dream where a young girl was being bullied. There was a fight scene that as soon as Lavinia woke up she had to start writing. This was the start of Erin the Fire Goddess.
Originally the book was only written for her daughter but after showing it to her friends they encouraged Lavinia to publish it. The rest, you can say, is history.
