Hey, you lovely people of the internet. Welcome!
I am a Mum to Nathan, he’s growing up so fast! We did discover that High School did not really work for Nathan and the way that he learns so we have gone on to a homeschool journey. I have only recently managed to write up my account of his birth story, just a number of years too late! I have always wanted to work in the field of journalism since my teens when I would blag my way backstage at concerts in the hope of meeting various members of boy bands who I fancied at the time. Who would know that 20 years later I would be doing this, and doing what I love. I am also a level 7 Google Local Guide, with over half a million image reviews and 50,000 place reviews viewed in the last year. I have also been given the chance to visit the Google HQ in Los Angeles for 2019.
I am currently working on my first novel, all about dating as a single mother – something I know lots about, sadly! I am hoping to secure a publishing deal in the next year, stay tuned for updates! I have now landed myself a lovely man, Gavin, who is very supportive of my crazy creativeness and puts up with my constant state of chaos!
