When Vanessa Wester decided to start writing she found an outlet for her imagination. It is the best way she can think of to express herself and escape from everyday life.

She has a lot of eggs in her basket since she is a qualified Secondary School Mathematics Teacher, ASA Swimming Teacher, has a degree in Accounting & Law, has been a competitive swimmer and enjoys art, singing and drama. In addition, she is bilingual in English and Spanish, and speaks some Dutch, since she was born and raised in Gibraltar and has lived in Rotterdam.

Vanessa grew up in Gibraltar, and for the first 9 years of her life the frontier to Spain was closed so she only knew the “rock”. Her mum and dad encouraged her to read, and she especially remember going a lot to the library with her dad.
