About the author
I grew up in Cockfosters, North London, in a Christian home – the youngest of four children. After I left school at 16, I trained as a nursery nurse, but then worked in a shop and the tax office before working in a junior school in Norwich.
For eight years I was the Regional Secretary at the headquarters of the Torch Trust for the Blind, a Christian mission dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of blind and partially sighted people. Books, magazines and Scriptures are produced in Braille, giant print and audio formats. Fellowship and personal support are provided through local groups and specially arranged holidays.

It was through the Torch Trust that I met my husband Peter and we have been married twenty six years. We live in Cornwall and I have been a full-time mum to our children Lois and Nathan – who are now both in their twenties. Our baby daughter, Naomi, only lived for twenty minutes but her memory is very precious to us.
For many years I have hosted a weekly Coffee Morning and Bible Study Groups, mainly for young mothers, and I've also been involved in Parenting Classes.
I can be contacted by email: email@example.com and am always pleased to hear the experiences of other parents.
