About the author (2012)

Sera Johnston lives in Surrey with husband Glen, and their children Dana aged 14, Oliver aged 6 and their cat Marcel. This is Sera's first book and has been a project in the thinking for years as it never seemed the right time. In 2011 following a six-month fundraising campaign to get Dana to America for an operation, Sera coordinated an appeal and raised £75,000. The operation has changed Dana's life and it now seemed the right time to write this book. Sera is an NLP Master Prac itioner and an experienced personal development coach. Sera is also an experienced trainer and facilitator, having worked in private and public organisations. Sera is passionate about developing individuals to gain a better understanding of themselves and achieve positive outcomes.
