About Toria

& how she came to write.

Toria found her love of writing during her treatment for ovarian cancer. After watching the difficult journey that her young boys went on during her illness, she wanted to write books that inspire children to develop their emotions.


Toria is a paediatric and neonatal nurse. She is a mother of twin boys. During her career she has helped many children and their families.

When she is not busy doing all of the above she enjoys running, walking her dogs, good food and good wine! 


Toria’s first book ‘Butterfly Boy’ is available to order on Amazon now
