I have three children, two girls at home and a son who lives not too far away. My children are a huge part of my life, they continue to inspire me as they grow and change. I have always been a writer in some form or another, whether I am writing to do lists or a journal. I always somehow feel a little bit better if I can write it down. My husband and I ran our own business for most of our married life and I trained as a counsellor at the age of twenty-seven, in many ways this was a big turning point in my life and changed the way I experienced many things and the way I viewed how others did too. It has also helped me to understand and feel others suffering.
In many ways writing and reading have helped me through some of my most difficult times and this book was written at one of the most difficult.
