Tanya Southey is a people-collector, tea-drinker, dog-lover, poetry-junkie and recently published author. Her children’s adventure story Ollie and the Starchaser subtly explores grief and loss. In 2018 Tanya completed a poetry challenge – #52words52weeks – where she collaborated with London Street Photographer, Denise Smith, to create a poem a week. In 2019 they are continuing the project as they are hooked on having a creative blast together. Currently, Tanya is pretending to have retired from her corporate career, but work keeps finding her. Her mission, whether in writing or life, remains to help people reach their full potential.
