Emma Roscoe is one of 18 contributors to the book ‘It Starts With Me – An anthology of the magic that happens when women reclaim their strength and their stories’.
Emma, 39, from Baschurch, is a mentor, advocate and speaker, helping female survivors of intimate partner abuse.
Her contribution to the book tells how an accident at the age of 15 changed the trajectory of her life, having a devastating impact on how she saw and felt about herself, shaping the choices she made for the next 20 years as she experienced abuse, mental illness and further trauma.
As the founder of The Kintsugi Collective she aspires to mentor women across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and further afield.
Only a few hours after the book was released, it went to number one on the Amazon best-seller charts.
She said: “It’s a dream come true to become an author and I am so happy that this book has become a best-seller.”
