Why Sally writes:
I had dabbled on and off since my teens with poetry and song lyrics that were played out excruciatingly on my guitar. I was more focused on budgets and business reports until I decided to change career in my early 40s and studied nutrition. I was in the process of losing a lot of weight at the time and decided to write a journal that would become my first book in 1998. While I was waiting for that to be published I began writing short stories as practice pieces. I write in a number of genres mainly non-fiction for the books but also romance, fantasy and humour.
I find it is helpful for me to write both non-fiction and fiction in parallel and switch between the two. It stops me getting writers block and keeps me interested in both.
My father was in the Royal Navy and as a child we spent a number of years abroad in Sri Lanka, Malta and South Africa. Great experience for a child and with the added advantage of sunshine and wonderful people to meet. After school I trained as a secretary and then as a dental nurse but I was drawn to the hospitality industry and worked in the licenced trade, catering and hotels for several years before moving into retail and telecommunications for another twenty-five years.
At that point I decided that I wanted to pursue a completely different career, one that I had always been fascinated with. I began studying nutrition and the human body twenty years ago and I opened my first diet advisory centre in Ireland in 1998. Over the last 18 years I have practiced in Ireland and the UK as well as written columns, articles and radio programmes on health and nutrition. I published my first book with a Canadian publisher in the late 90s and since then have republished that book and released eight others as part of our own self-publishing company. Apart from health I also enjoy writing fiction in the form of novels and short stories.
From 2004 I was a presenter with my own show on local radio and Internet television in Spain and the UK; running my own production company until 2013.
