My pen name of ‘Emily Eleanor’ is for my grandmothers. I was born and bred in the UK, but have lived in Australia for years. I’m married, we have a son, a cat and some fish. We are getting better at keeping plants alive.

I build connections by (over)sharing my vulnerability and living life unfiltered. I write to share stories, break down barriers and to make my corner of the world a better place.

My first book One Last Hundred Chances, brought eight survivors’ stories together into one relationship timeline. Helping each survivor share their ‘red flags’, or what they wanted others to know that they’d ignored. While each story was unique, they all followed the recognised escalating pattern of coercive control and intimate partner violence. The book helps people recognise those patterns, either in themselves, or people they know. The book also provides advice to navigate out the relationship.

I lived with undiagnosed ADHD until I was 48. My ADHD going misdiagnosed as anxiety and depression. In an effort to better understand myself, during the pandemic I completed a Diploma of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Alongside the CBT, I am also an EFT Practitioner, Strategic Coach, and provide pro bono support to social enterprise organisations. My niche? I am living like a person I want to be around; while being the adult I needed while I was growing up.

In the spirit of reconciliation, I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land I live and work on, the Wadawurrung and Dja Dja Wurrung People, and recognise their continuing connection to the land and waterways. I also pay my respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
