Welcome to my writing home, a place where you can find out a little about me and more about my book (and others as I write them!)

Writing has always been my safe haven and happy place, the activity I turn to in times of trouble or great joy.  Playing with words and weaving narrative is what I most love to do, as is reading other writers work.

My first book has recently been published, and it came about as an extension of a social empowerment project I founded in 2013 called The Pretty Awesome Project which educates teen girls and young women about the benefits of healthy self-esteem.  It’s a subject I’m passionate about, and so it made perfect sense to write down the lessons I’d learnt throughout my own life journey and share it with as many women as possible.  The result is “Beautiful” and you can read more about it and how to get your copy by following the links at the top of this page.

Interaction and comments are encouraged here.  If you are a fellow-writer, you may enjoy reading my blog, and of course, you are always welcome to connect with me via Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads for more instant conversations.

Words make up the language that weave us all together, regardless of creed, color or circumstance.  By using them wisely, with kindness and love, we can make this world a wonderful place.
