Born in the North East of the UK, I am a young, married mum with three children. I am an entrepreneur, running a family business from my home-base. My debut novel, ‘Isolation Junction’ was published in 2016. Since this publication I have continued to be an advocate for those in abusive relationships through my blog posts, radio interviews and Twitter feed. In this, My second publication is released in October 2017; I have put together stories told to me by survivors of domestic abuse. In this way, I hope to give a voice to their experiences and to raise awareness of the types of unacceptable behaviour which fall into the category of domestic abuse. Thankfully the law has changed to incorporate this kind of insidious behaviour but still far too many people are trapped, isolated and afraid or unaware of how to escape. I hope that this anthology will give them the courage to take that first step and will raise awareness for those who can help them.
