Welcome to The Writing Garnet!

Welcome to The Writing Garnet, the place where honesty often gets me into trouble in more ways than one!

The Writing Garnet was started in March 2016 and was originally a place to simply share my love of all things books, with the hope of creating a space where reading and writing would combine with my life as a chronically ill single mum of one….and everything else. Thankfully I have achieved that! However there is always room for improvement, right?

Since 2016, TWG has went on to become a multi-award winning blog (pinch me!), a multi award nominated blog, and has found itself quoted in several well known paperbacks (Google Mary-Jayne Baker if you don’t believe me!), as well as having snippets of reviews quoted on Amazon and other things alike. Never in a million years did I think that I would win awards for my blog – but I am not complaining in the slightest and I continue to thank my lucky stars that, nearly five years on, people still continue to visit my blog and read my reviews, so thank you. Your support doesn’t go unnoticed at all.

So, what is THIS?

Well, THIS is me. This blog is my honest thoughts about my multiple chronic illnesses mixed with humour and ‘what the fried egg…..?’ moments. This blog is where I speak about life as a mum with a daughter who is Sassy with a capital ‘S’! This blog is where I review books and other things I have come across which makes me go ‘ooooooooo’ (and no, not in the x rated nature either!). This blog is where I simply speak and hope my experiences/diarrhoea of the mouth will end up helping someone near or far.

I hope you will continue to join me on the journey that is TWG, and if you ever spot one of my posts on here, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TheMighty, MyBump2Baby or anywhere I haven’t mentioned, please give it a share. Talk to me, I don’t bite!!

Much love,
