As a young girl, Gina Rowell, was very shy and felt comfortable being in the shadows of others. She did more listening than talking which was a benefit to her because she learned to understand people more. Instead of sharing her thoughts, she would write them in a diary. Her diary was where she could share her inner most thoughts and not be judge whether they made sense or not.
After Gina became a mother, she realized that she couldn't teach her children to let their voices be heard, if she didn't set the example. She continued to listen but gradually added her two cents. Through these interactions, Gina learned that she wanted more for her four children and herself.
In 2007, when the opportunity presented ... read more

In grade school I dreamed of creating a peaceful world. By the time I graduated from Millis High in 1982 I had become an angry agnostic. From my perspective at 50, I had given up on love and joined the “dark side”…and became a soldier of the American Empire.
I left the Army in the fall of 1991 after the first Persian Gulf War (“Desert Storm”). Until 2002 when the “Technology Bubble” burst I worked in a variety of high tech jobs.
In the fall of 2003 I met Albert “Skip” Snow at his Holistic Health Center in Medway, Massachusetts. Since that time my primary work has been working with clients as an “alternative health” expert…or writing about it.
While working as a Naturopath with Skip ... read more

I have always enjoyed writing, starting with a winning essay in a Primary school competition when I was ten years old. I was subsequently educated at Withington Girls’ School, Manchester, where the emphasis was on academic subjects and I put away any writing ambitions until much later.
In 1990 when my daughter was sixteen I went with her to a writers’ group where I was encouraged to try again. I did continue to write short stories and articles.
2005 - I self published (10 copies only) of an account of my breast cancer treatment diary, including emotional as well as factual details. It was intended as a guide for what actually happens to your body and mind following the diagnosis.
