I am the author of my first book, Get Out of Debt Hell. It is an account of how my husband and I accumulated crippling debts of £48,000 and how it all fell apart due to an unexpected crisis in our lives. As well as practical help it examines what is going on in society and culture that is luring people into overspending on many things that they don’t need and getting into debt as a consequence. This is my debut as an indie writer – a journey that is both exhilarating and terrifying, and a very steep learning curve – and I am presently house sitting, taking a breather and writing.
