Cheryl Rickman has written 14 practical guide books and inspirational memoirs on flourishing in life and business over the past 12 years. From popstars and rappers to death row prisoners and multi-millionaire business leaders, Cheryl has interviewed hundreds of people with extraordinary stories to tell and has ghostwritten best-sellers for a number of them.
"Happy Talk" by Captain Sensible was the first single Cheryl ever bought, age seven. Cheryl knew when she was eight years old that she wanted to a) help people and b) write books, so she sometimes pinches herself as she gets to write helpful how-to books for a living.
Having experienced the loss of her mother as a teenager and the loss of her father a few years ago, Cheryl now devotes her life to helping others to make the most of each moment of theirs.
As well as writing empowering books to inspire and inform, Cheryl is a qualified Positive Psychology Practitioner, Ambassador of Well-being for the Network of Well-being and contributes to Psychologies magazine and The Huffington Post, among others. Cheryl lives near Winchester, with her husband and their daughter.
