Hi Auntie Sian, I started reading your book the other day and it was so interesting to read about real life drama, there’s so much in it- you’ve had a rollercoaster life and what you have been through is really inspirational. The thing i liked most was reading about my nan and grandad because i didn’t know them well at all but your book helps me to understand them better in a way so thankyou! you’re book is brilliant well done, you’re a amazing writer and should be proud xxx

What a fantastic read and such a brave thing to do!

My copy of the book was delivered on Friday and I could not put it down and finished it yesterday (Monday). Full of some brave, touching, witty and downright funny stories – this book had me laughing out loud on the train in parts and getting some very funny looks, but I do not care.

We always think of autobiographies being “for the rich and famous” however this is the story of an everyday person overcoming some obstacles and issues that most of us can only imagine and as such becoming anything other than “everyday”.

Well done Sian – you deserve all the success in the world and I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone!!

This is an intense and emotional ride. I think it’s brave of you to share this but also it’s something that can maybe help others in similar situations. Sprinkling it with humor is a nice touch too. This is well written and easy to read, I think it will attract a lot of readers. I wish you the best with this.

The story of your life is fascinating to say the least and I am glad you have shared it. You have a smooth flowing writing style that is a pleasure to read. Your work is heart warming, at times heart wrenching and other times very funny. Backed with pleasure.

Dear Sian, You have an amazing story. :) I love that you have shared it with the world. :) It is is a good read because you create interest by having short paragraphs & lots of dialogue, which makes me want to keep reading to find out what’s going to happen next. I’m backing/commenting on your book to help it advance.

This is such an entertaining read. For some reason, I was expecting a rather frivolous tale. But there is so much more to it than that. Told with joy, pain, gutwrenching honesty and a lovely sense of humour, this is just a book that I feel deserves to be out there. I read four chapters and the time just flew. I found nothing to nitpick so I’ll just offer my congratulations.
Good luck and backed

Your pitch is interesting and attractive and made me want to read this book. You have sad episodes, serious episodes, but above all, funny episodes. I loved your introductory chapter, where you told the careers’ teacher that you already had a job as a Dolphin Trainer, although it was far from the truth. I like the way your mind wanders from one thing to another in your past life; for instance, you tell us about leaving school, remember some of the things that happened there, such as the murder of a girl by her brother on the games field; and then go off to tell us about the murder you were involved in yourself. This is told in such a light, entertaining way that we hardly realise what a serious business it was. You are a skillful writer, with a relaxed, easy narrative voice, and you hook us in quickly to want to read more. Backed.
