Guest Biography: 

Better known as The Word Queen, I have been a professional writer since the age of seventeen, initially for local newspapers, before progressing to corporate publications and magazines. I have even written for OK magazine!

I now spend my time writing and publishing books which empower people and spread Loving and Light to the world.

I grew up on the edge of a council estate in south east London in a quiet street called Thorn Close which I never liked the name of much.

I lived in that four bedroom semi for the first eighteen years of my life before I moved out and bought my first flat in Dartford. I rented out my spare room to a varied collection of tenants before I sold it in order to move to Spain at the age of 23.

My favourite pastime as a child was reading and I would go to the library with my mum and take out the maximum number of books allowed, then go home and read them all within a couple of hours. I was a true bookworm!

I also loved to write and when I wasn’t reading, I could often be found sitting on the kitchen floor penning a cute little story while my mum worked through a pile of ironing.

Growing up, I collected furry toys and the two that never left my side were my pink frog, Pinkie, and my hand-knitted gollywog, Jolly. I still have Pinkie today but unfortunately, little by little, Jolly fell to pieces and couldn’t be salvaged.

As an adult I have an over-active imagination, a positive outlook on life, and I adore rainbows, stars, hearts, flowers, butterflies, and anything else which involves Love, Light, and beauty.
