All About Me

First and foremost, let me introduce myself as a proud mother of two fantastic girls. I am committed to giving them a different experience of childhood to the one that I had, and the death of my mother has been my primary motivation to build an empire that my children will inherit one day.

I want to inspire my girls to dream big and guide them into adulthood by being the best role model possible.  I know that children rarely listen to what we say as parents, they learn so much more from what we do. So I teach my girls to be fearless and motivated, as I overcome anxiety, depression and circumstances to achieve my dreams.

As a child I longed to go to graduate from university, and now at the fabulous age of 31 I am in my final year of a Creative & Professional Writing degree at the University of Wolverhampton.

I juggle parenthood with university, writing for pleasure and writing for business. I hold my own events, run blogs, facilitate workshops and do public speaking, while also being home on time for the school run, doing homework with my girls and spending plenty of quality time with them too.

My journey from timid mouse to confident Queen has been an inspiration to many and I will continue to document it here on my blog, along with posts about writing and how we can work together.

Intrigued? Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on any posts!

Happy reading,

Annika x
