Author Bio: 

Elaine Collier started her spiritual journey in her late 20s after a visit to a spiritualist church inspired her to seek more. Over the years she trained in many modalities and therapies which changed her life. In her late 50s, she opened the Como Centre with her good friend and business partner, where they taught a wide range of mind, body, and spirit subjects. Sadly, the business closed at the height of the Covid Pandemic in 2020/21 and Elaine turned to writing as a lockdown project.

Elaine lives in South Oxfordshire with her non-blood family and her soppy cat, Roxy. She has a son, Jordan, who shares her love of all things spiritual and currently lives in Bali.

Never thinking a book was a possibility, she followed her intuition to share her story, and the result is this, her first published book.

Description of the book:

Once Bitten, Twice Prepared is an account of Elaine’s journey with two breast cancer diagnoses, 14 years apart, and how her spirituality, personal development, and a range of techniques helped her take back control and get through her second diagnosis with a new positive outlook. Although this is Elaine's personal account of her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, the techniques she uses to help her cope can be adapted to any life crisis. They are all simple and easy to do, but they do need commitment. Her book is honest, inspiring, and written with just a touch of humour as she takes you on her journey through two cancer treatments, her path to spirituality, and her personal regime of coping techniques.

Elaine's Full Testimony:

"I was guided to Brit through an internet search. It was the last link on the list of many but I knew that this company was a perfect match for my book. I was not disappointed. I met with Brit on a weekly basis via Zoom and she really got me focused on what I wanted to achieve. She pulled my story out of me, sometimes digging deep into parts of my journey that I had either forgotten or didn't particularly want to revisit. She gave me the confidence that my story was worth telling and the enthusiasm to keep writing. Brit and I spoke weekly with e-mails in between. She broke the work down into manageable chunks so that I had enough work to do without being overwhelmed by the complete project. It's hard to choose the best part of working with Brit, but highlights came at the start when she made it clear that the book was worth writing, and towards the end when it was ready to go to the editor. With Brit's help, I had achieved one of my goals. I would definitely recommend Brit to others. Brit gives you the confidence to write your story in the best way possible, and the knowledge to turn it into a published book."
