The wonderful reviews have kept coming and sales have continued as the time has gone by. Every single time I sell a book, I really do perform a happy little dance in my head as sharing my story feels so empowering and I know what other peoples stories did for me when I was in a dark place.

To be nominated feels very humbling and to have reached the final four in my category feels very inspiring to me when I recall the girl I used to be. She would have so wanted this but felt she did not deserve it or had the confidence to reach that place. So that to me is hugely powerful and enables me to realise my potential and my potential to keep on keeping on.

The awards evening takes place next month, November, in our capital city. I look forward to sharing the evening with you.
