About the Author

How was I to know that my life was to include many careers, three marriages, three children, a change of identity, going out with a millionaire and finding my secret family….

Siân Banks lives in Buckinghamshire and has 3 grown up children, 2 lovely grandchildren and family dog, Buster. Born in Holyhead, Anglesey, and raised by her mother and grandparents in Merseyside.

After leaving school in 1982 and after visiting the local safari park, Siân wanted to be a dolphin trainer. Lots happened along the way and she now works in London for an HR Consultancy in the IT department managing the support of the company websites and applications.

This is a collection of funny stories based on true events that have occurred since Siân left school and how the dream of becoming a dolphin trainer never happened. There is also a darker side where she was a victim of domestic violence and abuse and what she did to change her life and that of her children. It continues in good humour until the present day, that being 2010.
