On Saturday 24th March 2016 I did a talk and book signing at WHSmith book signing in Barnstaple, Devon. My son Ollie accompanied me and brought along his prized fountain pen to sign copies along with me. I never forget that it is because of his bravery and openess that I was able to develop my therapy and be allowed to talk about him and our journey . I feel he has more right to sign the books than me ! He is an amazing boy !

On Saturday 30th January 2016 Waterstones of Bath hosted my official launch and book signing event. The day was covered by Alex Kennedy of Bath Life magazine who has kindly allowed me to use some of the photographs he took. The event will be appearing in Bath Life on March 4th! I pinched myself throughout the day and was thrilled to see so many friends and family , many of whom had travelled. I met some fantastic and truly inspiring new people too and will forever carry their stories with me. This was an amazing opportunity and one I shall never forget.
On Friday 29 January 2016 I held my first WHSmith book signing event.It was a huge success and very well supported . The manager delightedly told me afterwards that I had outsold Mary Berry by three copies !! More WHSmith book signing events to follow shortly in Bath and Barnstaple !
I have recently written a blog for SingingDragon.com discussing my book, story thus far and my hopes, aspirations and dreams. Please feel free to pop by SingingDragon.com and have a read for more details. You can also find a brief extract from my book here.
I am very excited to announce my first WHSmith book signing event to be held in Minehead on Friday 29 January 2016. It is a real honour to do something like this for such a major mainstream book store . The first of many I hope !
On Thursday 10th December I did my first ever book signing – a wonderful event where I kept wanting to pinch myself ! I learned so much and met some amazing, inspiring people . I feel extremely honoured to be in a position where I can now share my work with others and touch so many lives. The feedback has been incredible . I poured my heart and soul into the pages and achieved this book against all the odds. It was a proud day .
So, so happy! Indian Head Massage for Special Needs, my first book, came out early on the 11th November, a very special date for me anyway, and within 24 hours almost sold out on Amazon. Just overnight stock was down to six copies and within two hours after that copies were down to just one ! I’d like to think there were more than just seven copies originally …. but joking aside since then I have noticed that stock has been topped up and it just keeps selling . My publishers are as excited as I am, which is just lovely.
I’m just so excited and full of hope that this book will truly touch lives, give hope and be a like a favourite recipe book for anyone working or living with special needs – a book that you will constantly refer to again and again . Amazing!

On Saturday 30th January 2016 I will be officially launching my book and signing copies at Waterstones in Bath. This is an unprecedented event of this kind for an author; it is normally a tickets only closed evening event but on this occasion it is an open event during the day from 2pm until 4pm. I am absolutely thrilled and so honoured that Waterstones are doing this for me. I will be doing a small talk too – but the favourite part of events like this for me is the delicious and informal chatting with so many people and hearing about their own journeys , often being inspired by them and hopefully being able to help too. I always learn so much and leave buzzing !

10th December 2015 – 11:00am to 2:00pm -Toucan Wholefoods in Minehead, Somerset.
