thank you to Sarah Hardy for inviting me to the blog blitz of Finding Myself, by Victoria J Brown Published by Bombshell Books
I have enjoyed reading Kat's journey so far and really have been looking forward to seeing where she was going next. Hoping it would be less traumatic.
Kat definitely has so much to consider, with the babies, battling post - natal depression, and being there for her sister. I began to wonder if she had enough strength to get through these issues, let alone all else that was going on around her. She really had her plate full.
I have found the series enticing to read and although I do find Kat selfless in one way, she is also self absorbed, but that is due to circumstances out of her control and reflecting on issues.
I do feel she has grown up so much through this book and found answers to questions and feelings she possibly hadn't considered previously.
Victoria has written a modern day women's fiction read, this finale has been my favourite of the three. Being able to build on the last two books...and...seeing Kat finding herself.
I am sure the future will always have chaos and turmoil, but Kat is stronger to deal with these.
A delight to read with emotionally well written scenes from various characters that I have enjoyed getting to know.
Victoria J.Brown has always had a passion for writing. When asked at the age of 9 years old, what she wanted to be when she grew up, her reply ‘an author’ was met with a disheartened response, ‘that jobs like that, don’t happen to people like us!’
Luckily, Victoria didn’t listen to this advice and never gave up on her passion. She continued to write while perusing a career in Marketing after gaining a BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing.
In 2006 her eldest daughter was born and then two years later her 2nd daughter came along. Victoria realised in the midst of the mummy madness, that she’d let her writing dwindle and that nappy-changing, sleepless nights and not being able to go to the toilet in peace could not stop her fulfilling her writing dreams. So when her girls were 3 years old and 18 months old, she decided that sleep was over-rated and enrolled at Teesside University. A year later she proudly left with a MA in Creative Writing, some wonderful friendships and a passion for therapeutic writing. While studying for her MA she was also delighted to win a short-story competition judged by Adele Parks, to which she received publication and mentoring from Adele.
After her MA, Victoria concentrated on writing women’s fiction. She loves writing stories that women can relate to. The Chaos Series grew from her own experience of pregnancy, motherhood and life.
Victoria is also passionate about mental health and likes to write of such issues in her stories. Her dedication to mental health and living life to the full has led her down a spiritual path. Through her learning of spirituality she qualified as a Law of Attraction and NLP Practitioner, which she integrates into her writing. Her inspirational blog includes an A-Z motivational journey with weekly therapeutic creative writing exercises. She has developed this further and will soon launch her inspirational shop. The shop has been created to pass on positivity and love to others … you never know when someone may need to see those messages.
Being accepted by Bombshell Books is a dream come true for Victoria, she hopes that her mantra for giving love always and never giving up will inspire others to follow their dreams and passion.
