Yvonne...mum, author, trainer, coach...


A life-long learner, a big fan of the late-great Stephen Covey, I have studied personal development, pyschology, behaviour modification as well being a Certified Law of Attraction Practitioner.  My day job before children was a Personal Assistant and since having been self-employed, I have also worked as a VA and run an Amazon business sourcing from China and selling direct to the States.

I also write romantic fiction, create training courses and coach.  Passionate about my lifelong hobby of genealogyy, I also train people to preserve and present their heritage in a way that not only inspires and instructs the younger generation but also excites them to either continue the research or at least to have an active interest in it.

A 60+ mum of two adult boys, the eldest of whom has a fast-paced highly paid IT position and the youngest; a Master of Music currently works as a Teaching Assistant but wants to compose for the film industry eventually; I have been very happily married for almost 30 years and have a long career behind me in business administration, gained from experience and qualifications from the Institute of Administrative Management.

In my ‘spare’ time I enjoy reading Tudor fiction, personal development books, genealogy, gardening, craft work, DIY and live theatre (another lifelong passion of musicals).
