A thought-provoking, informative and at times hilarious memoir of the author's quest for everlasting happiness through various spiritual traditions
When Siobhan Curham decided to write a book about happiness there was only one small problem, which became a massive problem as soon as she sat down to write - she wasn't truly happy.
Not wanting to be a fraud, she decided to discover the secret to true and lasting happiness before writing a single word. As a devout atheist, her quest was to take her on an unexpected path deep into the heart of the world's spiritual traditions.
Something More is the result of her quest and it offers readers a funny and moving account of Siobhan's journey, as she found religion - and promptly lost it again - then went on to develop her own spiritual 'pick and mix' of practises from Buddhist chanting, Irish yoga, Jewish philosophy and Reiki healing, to connecting with her inner goddess and finding her shamanic spirit animal (who, it turns out, was a large, black, talking horse).
Full of brutally honest anecdotes and age-old wisdom, Something More is for anyone who has ever thought about exploring their spiritual side, and those who might feel disillusioned by organised religion but still crave that elusive 'something more'. After all, who wouldn't want to find inner peace and everlasting happiness?
Siobhan is an award-winning author of books for adults and young adults. Her first YA novel, Dear Dylan, won the Young Minds Book Award and her Shipwrecked series is currently being developed for television. She was also editorial consultant on the internationally best-selling novel Girl Online by Zoe Sugg.
Siobhan runs a life coaching practice called Dare to Dream and she loves nothing more than daring other people to pursue their passions.
She is also a regular contributor to newspapers, magazines and websites and has featured on various TV and radio shows, including the BBC news, BBC Breakfast, GMTV and Woman's Hour.
When she isn't immersed in a world of words she can usually be found contorted into a weird shape on a yoga mat, or living out her Kids from Fame fantasies, training to become a dance teacher.
