In 2012 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and started a blog as therapy: The Breast Blog in the World. She started serialising The World According to Shardonnay, on the blog, two chapters at a time, on the 31st of January, 2013.

Her husband thinks they are carol singers, which inspires them to audition for the X-factor....
