About The Author

Throughout my life I have struggled with many health issues that resulted in my regularly being in and out of hospital, from a small child into adulthood, until I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome type 3 at the age of 38. This is a condition that affects the connective tissues, in a nutshell, they are far too soft and as the connective tissue holds one ‘together’ both through the skeleton and the internal organs, it explained why I had so many problems. However, having received this diagnosis, that was where it ended, the NHS offered no further help or advice, and I was left to get on with it.

From then on, I made it my purpose to do the very best for myself. I have spent my life proactively doing everything I can to make myself as well and as healthy as I possibly can be. I’ve studied health and wellbeing from many different angles for 20 years now and learned from some amazing people along the way who have afforded me life changing and empowering information.

For many years my world revolved around exercise and diet and I was doing very well. In my quest for any knowledge to do with health and well-being, around seven years ago, I came to learn of the principles of the holistic lifestyle. I became very interested in the concept of treating my ‘being’ as a whole, mind, body and spirit. This incredible approach, combined with the knowledge I already had of exercise and nutrition, took my health to a whole new level and it has completely changed my life. I learned on my journey that it’s impossible to have a healthy body without a healthy mind because the body is a physical manifestation of our thoughts and feelings. We need to address it all to be healthy, happy and whole.

I now lead a normal life and one wouldn’t know I had a problem now unless I told them. I’m very proud of the level of wellness I have managed to achieve for myself with this knowledge and am truly passionate about creating awareness of the difference this approach can make to one’s health and wellbeing.

In my opinion, since we have been faced with this pandemic, it has NEVER been more important for individuals to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.

I had always wanted to write a novel and so, I decided that I would write a beautiful love story, with all the basic principles of the holistic lifestyle laced throughout as an enjoyable introduction to this healthful and life changing practice. I hope you enjoy it.
