If you’re new to my website, welcome!
First and foremost, let me introduce myself as a proud mother of two fantastic girls. I am committed to giving them a different experience of childhood to the one that I had, and the death of my mother has been my primary motivation to build an empire that my children will inherit one day.
I want to inspire my girls to dream big and guide them into adulthood by being the best role model possible. I know that children rarely listen to what we say as parents, they learn so much more from what we do. So I teach my girls to be fearless and motivated, as I overcome anxiety, depression and circumstances to achieve my dreams.
As a child I longed to go to graduate from university, and now at the fabulous age of thirty I am in my second year of a Creative & Professional Writing degree at the University of Wolverhampton.
I juggle single parenthood with university, writing for pleasure and writing for business. I hold my own events, run blogs, host an online networking hour and do public speaking, while also being home on time for the school run, doing homework with my girls and spending plenty of quality time with them too.
My journey from timid mouse to confident Queen has been an inspiration to many and I will continue to document it on my blog.
You may know me as an author of four books. Shattered Dreams, The Soaring Butterfly, Reflections and Shine are all available on Amazon.
I am thrilled about the upcoming release of my fifth book in 2017! All will be revealed first through my mailing list. You can subscribe at the bottom of this page.
In February 2016, I developed a bi-monthly event called So You Want To Write A Book? and following this have now created a platform for new writers to develop their confidence and skills. It’s simply Writing With Confidence.
I was recently awarded Author of Colour by BEXLive and I am also a Lift Effects Star Award 2016 recipient.
I am founder and hostess of online networking hour #HelpAQueenOut. You can read more about that here.
Please also check out Project YOU where I encourage self love and empowerment for women through a series of blog posts, interviews and events with the PY team.
I am a very proud Ambassador and Social Media Coordinator for Free Your Mind, who support children and young people who are affected by domestic violence in the home, which can then result in mental illness in later life.
I am an experienced children and family support worker, specialising in domestic violence and under 5s, having previously worked in community and residential settings. I’ve also been a helpline volunteer for a rape and sexual violence charity.
But right now I write a lot and attend university to study a Creative & Professional Writing degree.
I wrote a powerful piece of poetry called I Am A Woman that was worthy of a visual to match.
I also wrote a story called Concrete Love which was adapted into a webseries in 2016 and you can watch the first episode below. Click here for a link to the full series.
This is not quite the end, I’m only getting started.
