In a nutshell:
I am a 27-year-old woman who has written a funny yet factual book on cricket for the modern woman. It is a comedic yet sexual innuendo-filled book which is aimed to get women interested in the sport – not necessarily playing but just watching. 6 years ago, before the 2005 Ashes, I could not stand the game, and found it mind-numbingly boring. All it took however was a couple of hours watching the Edgbaston test on TV and I fell in love with it instantly. I call it a “Cricket Epiphany.” From then on I thought, if this can happen to me, this can happen to anyone! I went to watch a lot of cricket but my girl mates would never come with me, I was stuck with the guys all the time! So about a year and a half ago I started writing a book to show girls the best side of it, such as sunbathing, cocktails and oogling fit men! Thankfully, with the help of an online cricket coaching company, MiSport, my little book idea was picked up and is actually available to buy today!
Thankfully Misport picked up on my love for working in cricket media/journalism and have involved me in filming and presenting videos for their coaching website. Just 2 weeks ago I was up at Durham County Cricket Club interviewing players and coaches.
In compiling the book I have consulted with many people in the game, from club cricketers, County Cricket officials and even Sky Sports cricket commentators and staff. All have loved what they have read and I have had very helpful advice and support from amateurs and professionals alike.
I’m determined to fight the good fight and get more women at cricket grounds. Cricket is definitely ‘on the up’ in the UK due to England’s recent Ashes victory in Australia and with the Cricket World Cup currently taking place right now in the subcontinant, now is the time to strike. I need to ‘get myself out there’ and promote what I believe could be very important for the Great British game. Getting more and more women supporting the game would undoubtedly increase it’s popularity, get more people (including the men!) interested in the classy sport and hopefully put cricket in the public eye more, which is currently dominated by football! (To my annoyance!)
Go on world, buy my ebook and enjoy your very own Cricket Epiphany!
