I'm Vanessa and I'm so glad to be connecting with you!
I write fiction and the occasional freelance article too. I'm the author of The Florentine Bridge and The Memories of Us (HarperCollins Avon) which is now available worldwide in eBook format and will be available in paperback in the UK and Canada in July 2018 and the USA in early 2019. You can pre-order a copy here! This book was released in Australia/New Zealand as The Memories That Make Us, which was published in March 2018 in with HQ Fiction (Harlequin, a division of HarperCollins). You can order a copy here.
I love working with like-minded writers and use my skills as a Life Coach to help writers transform their writing lives and become comfortable with pursuing their writing dreams. I have a deep respect for the craft of writing and my approach to writing is one that encompasses writing mindfully.
In September 2016, I hosted my first sold-out writing retreat in Tuscany called Your Beautiful Writing Life. In 2017, myself and author Lisa Ireland hosted a retreat in Daylesford, Victoria, AUSTRALIA. For more information on 2018 retreats in both Daylesford and Tuscany, visit www.yourbeautifulwritinglife.com
From time to time I'll be hosting workshops for writers, so be sure to add yourself to my newsletter list to keep up to date with forthcoming workshop dates, including a future retreat news.

Over the years, my work has been published in and I’ve been featured in magazines, newspapers and online, including publications such as Muse magazine, The Huffington Post, Elephant Journal, The Green Parent (UK), Italy magazine, and more.
