In the simplest definition I am a tattooed Mother of 3 boys; 2 human and 1 dog. They are Macen who was born in 2016. Carson who was born in 2018 and Wade “Dugpool” Wilson, the the hairiest and whitest Labrador I’ve ever met, came into our lives in February 2019 at 8 weeks old. My Husband/’Baby Daddy’ and I have been together since 2011 and we sentenced each other to ‘life’ in 2014. We reside in a small town in Scotland just outside Stirling. As of 2020 I became a self published author.
Dogs are quite literally my life…
I’m a ‘caninetrovert’ at heart. I obtained my Canine Behavourist Diploma with distinction in January 2020 and I continue to study in my spare time. I am looking to add Pet Bereavement Counselling, Canine Nutrition and Pet Therapy, amongst others, to my accolades.
I am a self-published author and released my first children’s book called “How To Rest On A Rainbow” in December 2020. My second book ” How To Fix A Rainbow” was released in March 2021 and I am now working on other new children’s books as well as two young adult fictions. You can find out more about my books in my Bookshelf.
Being an author has been a dream of mine since I was a kid and since I am a little bit too late in becoming a veterinary surgeon, an author was tied. I have also recently decided to start studying proof reading, copy writing and copy editing to help me on my mission with my books as well as benefitting my other writing projects.
Let’s get to the fun stuff, shall we?
Here are a few random, fun facts about me to get a sense of the person I am.
- Music was my first and forever love, it is my boyfriend for life.
- I am proud to live a vegan lifestyle and do so for the animals and our beautiful planet.
- I have an affinity with animals, especially Highland Cows. Some may say I have a slight obsession with them.
- I don’t like being in front of the camera and either have resting bitch face or pull a silly face…there is no in-between.
- I am a “Disney Dork” and love all things Disney, even more so now that they also have the rights on the Star Wars franchise.
- I adore Lzzy Hale of “Halestorm” and Maria Brink of “In This Moment”. They are my she-roes and I love how unapologetically themselves they are
I am a creative person and have been ever since I was a kid. Now, I am no Picasso by any means, however, I do enjoy painting as a past time. Writing and photography are where my creative passion ignites and blazes. Reading has always been a big things for me and I love getting lost in a good book, in someone else’s view of the world. I think that is why writing and photography speak so clearly to me. I love that I can show people my vision of the world and allow them a glimpse of mine too.
As an ambassador for M.E Support UK, I have been writing and contributing to their articles since 2015. As of 2020 I have become the sole contributor for their blog.
I am a Bookbug Sessions Leader in my local council. I love being able to read stories and sing songs with children ages 0-4 years. Bookbug Sessions help their development, strengthen the bond with their parents and ignite a love for literature and libraries. I am a huge advocate of children falling in love with the written word.
In life I have always been a sentimental person. I believe wholeheartedly that life has most meaning when you are collecting moments and not things.
For a long time now I have been an encourager of being unapologetically yourself and flying your ‘Freak Flag’ high. I am proud to be a strong woman who is finding who I am and enjoying being just that.
