My Memoir

My first memoir, It Rains In February, was originally self-published at the end of 2011. As an unknown author, I spent the following year promoting my book for several hours each day. By the end of 2012, I had 75 Amazon reviews with an average rating of 4/5 stars. I had also achieved my goal of 50,000 people having a copy of my book which had risen into the top 100 bestsellers in the main memoir category. In 2014, my book was a finalist in the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards. I am currently writing my second memoir and a series of children’s books.
