I started writing as a way through the process. Of navigating what was happening. It started off as a blog. Then it just grew. People started having an active interest in it. The writing. The experience. I kept going. I didn't know it was going to be a book when I started. I was just writing as a way to get through.
From my early teens I have written diaries documenting these struggles: my thoughts, feelings, dreams, desires and innermost emotions are expressed through periods of bullying, dieting, drinking too much, heartache, chasing the wrong things in life, the wrong men, living in different counties, and ultimately searching for my peace and, of course, true love and balance.
