My name is Shona, I’m an as-yet-but-not-for-wont-of-trying unpublished writer, I have 2 delightful children (honest they are) and a job that sucks, mid-divorce, about to head to New Zealand ON MY OWN WITH 2 CHILDREN for 3 glorious weeks. Last year I wrote a novel, entered several short story and poetry competitions, wrote a screenplay with a friend and started a blog, none of which has earned me a penny or even a feint whiff of recognition but I somehow want more! I do weird yoga and hate Only Fools And Horses.

“The Studies reveal that the wrong hairstyle can have disastrous effects on everyday things like job interviews, first dates, and important meetings, they even going so far as to suggest that doctor’s decisions can be affected by the wrong hair.”
