About me

I’m a 42-year-old mum of five, and have been happily married to a wonderful man for 19 years. I run my own editorial business from home.

I have a daughter aged 16, a son who’s 11, another son who’s 4, and a 2-year-old girl. My eldest daughter, Abi, died suddenly from a brain haemorrhage in February 2013 when she was in Year 7, she was just 12. So, while I have four at home, I’m always ‘mum of five’.

I started this blog to express my grief and, over time, I’ve found I am able to write about other aspects of my life too and share some of my best memories and moments. I enjoy reading other blogs and getting to know those having similar experiences.

Since Abi’s death, my faith has not only grown but deepened. I am a devoted Christian and dedicate time to finding out more about God and growing my relationship with Him. I attend an Anglican church and will sometimes write about my faith.

You’ll soon realise that I write it as it is, and from the heart. Having two children so soon after the loss of my eldest child and seven years after my third child was born has been challenging in lots of ways, but it’s mostly been a blessing and brought us all a renewed sense of hope and happiness.

Why not pop over to my Home page to browse some of my latest posts? You can also order a copy of my new book The Dragonfly Story, which helps to explain the hope of heaven to children of all ages.

I do hope you enjoy reading and would love to hear from you. Please also follow me on my social media links as I love to meet new bloggers and readers.
