I love writing, reading, travelling and experiencing new things and I suppose for most of my life it has been this way!
But only a few years ago I made a conscious decision to say YES more and have since completed a Wolf Run, 100 mile bike ride, marathon and Rough Runner amongst others; visited 9 countries across 3 continents; numerous big cities, landmarks and so far checked out 4 festivals, some more than once!
I've tried (and, yes, completed!) escape rooms, took on zorbing, tubing, burlesque dancing, many Butlins Weekenders, gigs- I'm down for anything, I LOVE fancy dress; if it sounds fun, I'm there!
Writing and publishing my books also came along with my new attitude and now the best part about being a writer is I can still do all of these things and now call it research!
I always take advantage of photo opportunities to promote me and my work on social media plus through my blogs I'm happy to share my experiences, tips, failures and achievements.
I'm proud of what I have done so far and looking forward to everything that's still to come! I dream big, accept when it doesn't work out to plan and I'm not scared to change tact.
Daily I live by lists. I make them religiously and organise my time in a way which works for me. And I do not know what I'd do without my diary!
I like to pole dance for fitness and practise weekly. When my spare time isn't taken up with writing, I like to get creative. My home is filled with upcycled furniture, paintings, poetry and other projects and I like to embellish trainers and bags.
I enjoy challenging myself and I'm very motivated when it comes to working on something that I've set my mind on. And I am always on the lookout for my next adventures.
Instagram is my favourite social media app because I love taking photos. This hobby has turned out to be useful in publicising my books and who I am as an author, I also use Facebook and Twitter amongst others.
Everyone who knows me knows I try to be positive, open-minded and I don't mind showing the world my true colours. I am a bit of a geek- you can't beat universe and alien documentaries- and a little free-spirited. I like to laugh, sing and dance, and I'll cry at the drop of a hat- especially if it's something happy!
Life is far from a bed of roses. But out of the worst things that have happened to me so far have come some of the most valuable lessons.
I have so much more to learn and loads more on my bucket list! Through my books and my blog the stories will emerge in one way or another. I hope to have you along for the ride!
