Becoming an author was my my childhood dream, but as I grew up everyone who heard my dream told me that writing wasn’t a real job, and to get my head out of the clouds. Taking their advice I went into the world of business, and explored a range of industries. Then in 2011 after years of struggling with my health I suddenly became too unwell to work full time, the sparkly silver lining for me was finally having the freedom to write.
The blog I started got such good feedback, that it felt right to jump in and create my first book, Down With Frogs – a modern fiction collection about the frogs that you have to kiss on your way to finding your Prince. Told in the hilarious, candid, occasionally tragic, always compelling way that women might speak to their closest girlfriends.
I wanted Down With Frogs, and my subsequent books to be accessible to those with literacy issues or eye sight difficulties, without creating a separate edition that marked out difference, so chose to use guidelines from The British Dyslexia Association (a larger, regular shaped font, wider spacing between lines, and bold titles), in all my books.
If you would like to buy my books you can order them online, or through any independent bookseller, or you can buy them directly from me…
