Started my own carpet cleaning service in 1999. Was a great success. Decided in 2008 to make some changes in my life. Moved away from Morecambe bay and came south to Folkestone. Learned about how to use the internet for my work. I have created 3 e books and 3 booklets. These products are on sale on the internet and on my blog. I don't go out cleaning carpets anymore now. I spend most of my working days on my computer at home.
I would like to do lot's of travelling. I have an old motor home. I use it for returning to the north to visit my family. Hoping soon to go to Portugal. I live alone, but I'm not complaining. Got lots of ideas which I would like to see working. All of my work efforts now are on line. Alway ... read more

I was born in Israel, a country that was established as a homeland for Jews, many of them refugees. Over the last century, many Jews had been forced from their homelands, persecuted, and killed as members of an ethnic and religious minority.
Israel was essentially founded as a refugee nation, exclusively for Jewish refugees. The Jewish people came together, and despite enormous obstacles formed a Jewish nation. I hope the world will now come together to form a nation for all refugees regardless of race, religion, or nationality.
I grew up in the United States, which has been home to refugees and asylum seekers since before its independence. I was surrounded by people of all nationalities and backgrounds. Th ... read more

Born and raised in the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. Reading, photography, graphic design and dare I say working out are my favorite pastimes. So is sleeping...
A middle child of two siblings, I'm a university graduate in Information Technology, makeup junkie, movie lover, amateur foodie and coffee enthusiast.
I've always wanted to find my passion, to not only do something you're good at but to love it. Reading has always been one of my passions and I've always been told that I was good at writing so at the ripe 'old' age of 33 it finally dawned on me "Why not use writing in a way that I loved?" and my first book Jade was born.
I hope you enjoy it and all other 'reads' to come!

My name is Connor Wolf. I'm an author, as I'm sure you can already tell. I've been writing for 7 years now but only finished my first manuscript when I was 15. I was 11 when I began writing. The thing I love most about being an author, is that I can go anywhere I can dream, be any person I want, from an emperor ruling a land, to a lowly thief. I can be a vampire, a werewolf or I could simply be a bookstore owner. The only limitations are the ones you set yourself. If you can dream it, you can be it.

A British -born to Guyanese parents, Shilohnie was raised in Guyana in South America. The only girl in a strict Christian household she shared with her parents and five brothers, she developed –a strong sense of uniqueness at an early age. By constantly burying her head in story books, she found a secret place of escape from the challenges of a child growing up in a third world country to a land of fairy tales, adventure, and magic.
But her reality was far from the dream worlds she read about in story books; at eighteen she found herself to be an abused wife and mother who faced unattended pain and grief which fermented into anger and bitterness when she lost her father and protector to a heart attack.
