All About Me
The main focus of my writing is positivity – I love writing things that make people smile. Through this process it gives me so much joy to bring you words of inspiration, comfort, love, and authenticity to help you on your journey whatever it may be. I have been extremely blessed to have found my true life’s purpose.
I am truly grateful and appreciate you for being part of my journey. Thank you.
My ‘back of the book blurb'
Jenny Ford didn’t set out to be a writer. In fact, no one was more surprised than Jenny when she finished writing her first book!
"When you have gratitude you have everything".
Before I became an author I had a very successful business as a mobile beauty therapist. In 2010 I was diagnosed with MS I was forced to give up my business which took me years to build, my world was crushed it was soul-destroying sending me into a dark place of depression. A few years later I was introduced to meditation and from that day my life completely changed and that’s when I started to connect with my angels.
Through angelic guidance, I was given my true purpose in life and that was to write words of healing, you see I believe that my MS was a gift so that I can show others that no matter what challenges we go through there is always a new path ahead, a new and better journey to begin. I never set out to be a writer and no one was more surprised than me when I wrote my first book and I shall tell you why.
I was never an A* student at school, actually, I was very rarely at school at all, I would walk through one gate and straight out the other, school bored me to tears. I left with no GCSE’s or O’levels as they were known back in the day, something I’m not proud of. My spelling and grammar suffered a lot, it has improved massively since then but I still do find it a challenge at times so it surprised the heck out of me when I started to write books.
Look at me now, I am a published author and have written several books in multiple genres – plays, children’s books, contemporary women’s fiction and nonfiction books (guided prayers and inspirational messages) – and have also created my own merchandise.
I have received two business awards in two consecutive years 2017-2018 from The Business Community St Albans in Hertfordshire where I live in the UK. In 2018 I was nominated for a Prestigious Global Award by The Authors Academy for my fiction book Prisoner Within, and in 2019 I received a Gold Award from The Janey Loves Platinum Awards for my children’s dyslexia friendly story colouring book Joshua and the Magical Unicorn.
And, in 2020 I have been awarded the Gold Award for my book "The Loss of a Child ~ My Story" about the loss of my daughter Catriona.
I am now a multi-award-winning author. If only my teachers could see me now!
What I am trying to say is no matter what background you are from, if you were rubbish at school or have no qualifications you can do anything that your heart desires. I was given another chance to help bring comfort and healing to people through the written word.
