I lost my dog in 2018. A little brown dachshund dog called Buzo. For almost 11 years of her life, she was the glue that kept our family together. So, no surprises for guessing what inspired me to write a book about a dog called SUPERBU.
With COVID-19 impacting the job market, people are turning to new ways of making an income while staying indoors and socially distant. When people hear the word ‘freelance’ they automatically think of industries within the arts such as writing or digital design.
