Thanks for visiting my site and for your interest in me. My book “Scarred” has been published in hardback, paperback and now on kindle. I am also hoping that it may be developed into a screen play in the very near future.
On my website I have shared information about my book and also what I am doing now in terms of my professional career and also motivational speaking which is an area that I have developed. A lot has happened since the ending to “Scarred” and I am currently writing a follow up book that I hope to publish in 2019.
The big news for me at the moment is that I was awarded an OBE in the New Year's Honours list. I am so proud to have received this honour and for my work with The Silver Line Helpline where I am Chief Executive, to be recognised in this way.
In November 2017 I was invited to speak in Palm Springs at the TEDMED conference. It was an opportunity to share my experiences worldwide - I was billed as "Helpline Hero" as I told the story of how a simple human connection can really save a life - speaking personally in terms of how Samaritans helped me, but also now in my role as CEO of The Silver Line Helpline.
In March 2018 my talk was published on both the TEDMED and TED websites so is now reaching a global audience with over 1.5m views!
