(This post is scheduled, but I will be back on WP as soon as possible. Lots of love to all of you!)
Every week I want to share an amazing blogger with you all, an idea I stole from my pal Shauny. (mwahaha), so you can check out their blogs and maybe make some new friends!
All of these bloggers have amazed me with their art, kind heart, friendship and skills.
You ready? Here we go!
Meet Jade, my sweet friend and an excellent writer!

A little about Jade
Hi! I’m Jade and I started writing in February 2013 without a clue as to what I was doing. All I knew was that writing a novel was on my bucket list and that having done a Creative Writing course, I felt ready to give it a go.
This blog is my journey and since then I have somehow managed to write not one, but two novels. Twelve Days – The Beginning was published in April 2013 and I have just finished writing the sequel Twelve Days – The Future, which I am hoping to publish in early 2014. There are plenty more projects in the pipeline, and other books in the Twelve Days series. I think you can safely say that I have the bug! I also write the odd bit of poetry which you will see on here from time to time.
I am an impatient soul and so I decided to go down the self publishing route – not least because I am too frightened of rejection letters! This in itself has been a massive roller coaster of a journey but one that I can honestly say, I have loved every single minute of. WordPress is an amazing community and I feel so privileged to be able to share this journey with all of you.
When I’m not writing, I work part time at the local school and I am Mum to two boys, one of whom is severely disabled.
I also love cats and chocolate – well, who doesn’t?
So join me if you dare… it is a bumpy but hugely exciting ride.
My friend Jade is the writer of twelve days: the beginning & twelve days: the future.
I read twelve days: the beginning and it is a powerful book about love, desire, hope and betrayal.
I really loved reading this book! It has a great story, appealing characters, very intense at times and hard to put down because you have to do something else!

Besides writing, Jade is also a mother. One of her sons has autism and she decided to make a blog about this to connect with, and inform others who have a child that needs special care. You can find Jade’s other blog on–> http://autismschild.wordpress.com/
This is one my favorite poems by Jade:
The Road of Ashes
I plot my course, dead straight ahead
No twists or turns for miles
The future is clear, I see before
No sorrow, no tears, just smiles
The path I have chartered, it bumps along
But still I see the end
Those bumps I smooth, the frowns I erase
Woefully unprepared for the first bend
A vicious wind, a gust of life
It blows me from my path
No longer straight, the road it burns
The tarmac melting to ash
Blindsided I sit, amidst the remains
And survey my new terrain
Unfamiliar eyes, their message not clear
A battle, a fight to remain sane
Blackness beckons and I heed its call
No longer wanting the pain
Its promised relief, a blessing to me
In a world that I can no longer explain
But just as I succumb, a light appears
The age old cliche holding true
In blinding certainty I grab its hand
For love, has found a way through
By friendship, family and those I hold dear
The road has once again formed
More bumps than before, more struggles ahead
But I am not alone, of that I am assured
Through sheer will, force and determination
Through hope and unfailing belief
I understand now, that with my friends by my side
On this road, I will one day find relief

To me Jade is an amazing blogger because she is always there if I need her, she is extremely caring, loyal and sweet by nature and I consider her a very close friend.
Jade, thank you so much for touching my life and for being my friend. This is for you!
Lots of Love
