About The Author

My writing career came to life with the publication of my first book: Defining Moments – Reclaim Your Power & Live The Life You Love. (which is also available in Italian: Momenti Decisivi – Riafferma Te Stesso & Vivi La Vita Che Ami). This book is an autobiography with a difference: I wanted to use it as a conversation starter, an invitation to people around me to ask themselves those questions which can be confronting and at times, scary, the answer to which though, can well be the key to peace of mind and fulfilment.

By putting pen to paper, I have been able to clarify my own thinking and what really matters to me. What matters to me is to develop and live a powerful life where, despite the circumstances, I am aware of how I operate, take responsibility for where I find myself and take actions which are consistent with my context.

I am a country girl, someone whom from the age of 7 contributed to the running of the family farm. With my brother I would mind the cows in the fields, I would collect chestnuts (which we could sell) and acorns (to feed the animals) before going to school. I knew from an early age though, that what I had was not the life I wanted to live. I wanted to discover the world and find out what was available beyond the environment I happened to be born in.

Through the books I want to share what has worked for me, the lessons learnt, and the results produced.

How to Win & Keep Clients

If a country girl can manage to move from the restricted environment of a small village, to London, on her own, and create a successful life for herself and go through whatever she had to go through, anything is possible. 45 years on, I can look back and feel satisfied with what I have accomplished. I have often asked myself: “who do I need to be and what do I have to do to have a life of no regrets?” This is a big question I invite my readers to ask themselves.

I recently contributed to the co-authored book: How to Win & Keep Clients. The book is a source of knowledge and inspiration for solopreneurs, budding coaches and anyone interested in finding ways to succeed. My chapter focuses on the importance of taking care of the Mental and Emotional element of “you”. Mental and Emotional wellbeing is an integral part of the foundation for personal choice and ultimate success, whether in life or business.
