About Me

All About Me.

The Early Years

I was the first girl in my year to finish all of the assigned reading, it was my first ever achievement. Which supposes says a lot about me and how I got here. Harry Potter drew me in. The world had me hooked. I fell in love with the characters. It was the first time that a series had captured my attention and held it. From that moment on I was hooked.

High School

People usually change when high school came around, but for me reading was still a staple. I may not have shown my reading off but I always had a book in my bag ready to go.  One thing about me that people don’t realise is that  high school wasn’t an overly pleasant experience, and books were what kept me going. The worlds let me escape. I will be grateful always for that.

Declan

This is where the love of my life enters. He swept in kind of like Prince Charming and saved me. He supported me as I went to university and chose the life I wanted to lead.

University

I traveled off my small island and ventured into the world of university. I studied Creative Writing as my love of reading developed into a love of writing. I managed to meet the three of the best people, who love all the things about me. I learnt a lot about myself, but it was a hard time and I got through.

Present Day

I’m here. Writing this blog and loving everything about my life. I get to write brilliant book reviews. I get to read awesome books and I get to talk to brilliant people. I’m getting married, I have a puppy and there seems to be nothing missing. I still have my bad days, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. Or a good book to delve into!

There you have it… the brief history of me.

  1. Hello Jordann,

    When you are reading and reviewing books again, would you be interested in reviewing my book, Devil Out Of Texas ?

    https://www.amazon.com/Devil-Out-Texas-Roger-Raffee-ebook/dp/B01L6O9X8I/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1472555961&sr=1-1&keywords=devil+out+of+texas

    I just posted it for sale as an ebook in Amazon. Please let me know what I need to do or send you in order to have it reviewed. It’s 449 pages.

    Here is the brief synopsis I posted with the book:

    In the summer of 1973, a fourteen year old kid spends time with his grandfather and his friends, George Burns, Jack Benny, Georgie Jessel, and others, as they play cards at the Hillcrest Country Club near Beverly Hills, California. He later sits down to listen as his grandfather tells him the action-packed tale of his great-grandfather, the first Jewish Texas Ranger, and how his grandfather came to Hollywood to become one of the pioneers of the movie industry.
    The young man learns about how his grandfather came to be friends with the early stars of the silver screen, like Tom Mix, William S. Hart, Lionel Barrymore, and Doug Fairbanks, and his grandfather’s association with the great Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa, the famous lawman Wyatt Earp, and other fascinating characters.

    Thank you,

    -Roger Raffee
