Following redundancy from her position as an IT Manager in March 2018, the author followed two dreams. Firstly, to become a published author and secondly, a personal development coach. Her varied and challenging journey, post-redundancy, gave her the courage to strive towards her dreams. Initially, she wrote for herself to help make sense of her world. However, it was always her hope to show how a highly sensitive child experiences life through the characters in her stories. 15–20% of the population have this trait, including the author and some of her children.
