For many years I worked as an agony aunt and during that time was constantly asked by the Press to tell them this and that so that they could print it. Sometimes that was fine and no problem and it may have been beneficial to me, but at other times it was a waste of my time or could have done me harm. There was one time when a reporter got it into her head that she would print a story about whether or not I was married or living with someone, or living alone and I was not interested in having this story done. In fact it could have been dangerous as I used to have clients come to my office in my house to sit and talk to me about their problems and get advice. If people knew that I lived alone and knew my address, and that I was a young woman, it could have been a temptation for rapists, muggers, thieves and nuts. But when I tried to explain this to the reporter she did not care and printed a story anyway.
The big differences between me and a reporter and why you can trust me are this…
1. I know what it is like to be on the receiving end of attention from the Press and reporters wanting to do stories where it might be better to say no, or better to go elsewhere.
2. Having worked as an agony aunt and therapist for a long time I am a caring person who puts the welfare of people at the top of the list.
What do you think of this?
I recently had a reporter contact me. She knew that I often see or help people who have gone through problems or need advice. She tried to persuade me to persuade them to go to her and sell her their stories. I know that some of these people are too emotionally weak or vulnerable, or it would be harmful to them in some way to go public, even if well paid. She did not care about this. To her the more the merrier because each one is a new source of money for her.
With me if it is best for you to heal first or best for you not to sell your story at all I will be honest and tell you and explain it to you.
Unless the average reporter I do not have to satisfy an editor or worry about how to pay the mortgage. I am self employed and turn away most work that comes my way. So I will only take on your story if it is good for you.

âThe ideal tour guide . . . both entertaining and informative.ââBooklistHere is the riveting story of the English language, from its humble beginnings as a regional dialect to its current preeminence as the one global language, spoken by more than two billion people worldwide. In this groundbreaking book, Melvyn Bragg shows how English conquered the world. It is a magnificent adventure, full of jealousy, intrigue, and warâagainst a hoard of invaders, all armed with their own conquering languages, which bit by bit, the speakers of English absorbed and made their own.
Along the way, its colorful story takes in a host of remarkable people, places, and events: the Norman invasion of England in 1066; the arrival of The Canterbury Tales and a âcoarseâ playwright named William Shakespeare, who added 2,000 words to the language; the songs of slaves; the words of Davy Crockett; and the Lewis and Clark expedition, which led to hundreds of new words as the explorers discovered unknown flora and fauna. The Adventure of English is an enthralling story not only of power, religion, and trade, but also of a people and how they changed the world. Price: $9.44
