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 is working on a poetry challenge – #52words52weeks – where she is collaborating with London Street Photographer, Denise Smith, to create a poem a week. 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.
