Vanessa Newman began her writing career at the age of eight when she penciled her first 26-page novel. Unfortunately, it received neither parental nor peer approval. She dared to write again after attending Bradford College where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Human Studies. At that time, she wrote health and education articles published in IDEA Fitness magazine, The Teaching Professor, Rocky Mountain Fitness magazine and Women’s Edition. She also commenced an online writing career creating web-based courses for companies like SkillSoft and Anheuser-Busch. Vanessa later earned a Master of Science degree and focused on health-related writing. Yet, her creative writing did not take priority until 2015 when she received 2nd prize in a short-story contest and wrote her first children’s story and first novel.
