She's also been (and still is) a model, and was even a missionary in her home country of Guyana in South America, and has also had her own call-in radio show. 

These diverse experiences and abilities help her to write better - at least that’s what she keeps telling herself.

The author has spent four years of active research uncovering well-kept secrets which will help the average family spend less on food shopping, household bills, entertainment, large purchases and arbitrary outgoings. She's acid-proofed all the examples given in this book so you don't have to do any of the hard work.
