About Sparrow

How it started…

Sparrow started back in 2011 with the tiny idea of bringing information onto paper, and then for everyone to read was finally online.

You may know 5 Steps to Happiness from 2011 and 2012 as a pdf, but now it’s an e-book format since 2018, available on Amazon. It’s an activity book that concentrates on how-to-make-your-day-better. Pretending to be happy all the time is not in this book. It helps you have that fresh breath of hair and an Ahh moment. The author has a scholarly background in the field and spent quite a few years conducting thorough research and reflecting on the best steps they have used for decades.

From typewriters that clang loudly and the dripping ink, perfection was the game of the time. Upon a second attempt, old floppy discs broke, transforming many works into useless squares and symbols – a true gobbledygook. Since then, Sparrow still brought up poetry works, non-fiction, self-help, and fiction.

Fun Facts

During the typewriter era, the author had to type everything error-free. One error and the author had to re-type everything from the beginning.


Later, there was a form of whiteout, and you could still type things up, but it was a wet mess. What does moisture do to paper? It turns your work into mulch. One had to have patience and a room full of grace to type, re-type and make every word perfect.


The loud clanging was an issue within itself, it was like grinding pavement, which may have caused a headache. Then the letters of the typewriter were getting loose, and you could take them up and replace them, but that is for another story.


Let’s not forget the pencil experience. Everyone knows what a pencil does, it smeared across the pages making it hard to read. Since then, the author did not use a pencil for over twenty years.
