Once Bitten, Twice Prepared is an account of Elaine’s journey with two breast cancer diagnoses, 14 years apart, and how her spirituality, personal development and a range of techniques helped her take back control and get through her second diagnosis with a new positive outlook.
Although this is Elaine's personal account of her breast cancer diagnoses and treatment, the techniques she uses to help her cope can be adapted to any life crisis. They are all simple and easy to do, but they do need commitment.
Her book is honest, inspiring, and written with just a touch of humour as she takes you on her journey through two cancer treatments, her path to spirituality and her personal regime of coping techniques.
Elaine lives in South Oxfordshire with her non-blood family and her soppy cat, Roxy. She has a son, Jordan, who shares her love of all things spiritual and currently lives in Bali.
Never thinking a book was a possibility, she followed her intuition to share her story and the result is this, her first published book.
