A Self Help Guide to Stress Relief and Stress Management
Using quizzes to help you understand your stress, this guide provides helpful hints by way of “release valves”, to get your life back on track using natural methods.

Well, I am currently working on a few different projects.
- The Girl in the Shadows Part 3 – Editing
- The Girl in the Shadows Part 4 – Writing
- A Paranormal Romance Novel (1) – Writing (Almost ready for first edit)
- A Paranormal Romance Novel (2) – Writing
- Irish Paranormal Haunts Part 2 – Researching
So, lots of things to keep me busy.
I used to think I’d never finish the first book but now, I have so many things on the go and I know they will all get done in their own time.
Perhaps that’s the secret.
Let things happen as they will. Do not try to force them.
And always take time to smell the roses!

The first edit is complete!
The manuscript has gone out to beta readers and while I’m waiting I will start on the second edit.
I’ve still got the two paranormal romances to finish and more information to gather before I can write up Irish Paranormal Haunts Part 2, but hey, things are happening!
Looking forward to getting this one published!

From a lady in Dublin, Ireland
I read the book very quickly, within a day or two. It was one that I couldn’t put down, I kept having to read and find out what was happening next.
Grace’s innocence, enthusiasm and funny inquisitive nature brings you to have quite a few giggles.
It reminds the reader of what life was like back in the day, so simple and yet they were happy.
Definitely a read I would recommend to everyone. Genuinely one of the best books I have read in a very long time.

From a lady in Portugal. Thank you Carolina!
” I read this book just in one day and I must say it was an experience like I hadn’t had for a while. This is not a big book but it is full of emotions and meaning that you won’t want to leave alone for too long.
Grace’s mind is as colourful and innocent as any child should be and she will be faced with many opportunities to show you so. She’s in fact the epitome of ingenuity and you are left with no other option but to fall in love with her. Be warned, she may make you burst into laughter even in crowded public places.
You will soon begin to realize the reason behind these behaviours (and it’s shadows) and hopefully you’ll keep feeling the same towards her and all the other little Graces around the world. You’ll learn that you can keep your pity to yourself and simply admire how truly happy one can be, even with the simplest and yet meaningful life. ” — Carolina Valdoleiros
