ABOUT THE GIRL BEHIND THE BLOG



Hello everybody, this is Zoe and I'm the woman behind nosaferplace. 

I'm 23 years old, and I currently live in Hertfordshire with my gorgeous husband. I'm currently a full-time blogger and YouTuber, and I couldn't imagine life being any more fabulous than it currently is. I never imagined I could turn my hobby into a job, but I have managed to do just that.


As you can probably guess, I spend the majority of time reading. Books are a huge passion of mine and always have been. Nothing makes me more enthusiastic than a good book; I'm sure you'll find me raving about a book on my social media platforms at all times. I am a Grade 6 in singing; music is another love of mine. Spending time with my family is probably my favourite thing to do. My niece and nephew, Emily and Rory, are the lights of my life.

Me, My Chronic Illness & I

When I was 17, I was diagnosed with SVT (a fast heart) and I had 2 small operations to fix this; both failed. When I was 19, I was then diagnosed with PoTS. Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome has turned my life upside down and left me unable to keep up any kind of job and even any kind of social life, for a while. I'm still unable to work a "normal" job but I'm surrounded by the most amazing support network and I have an amazing social life. I will post about my chronic illness/disability from time to time; raising awareness of such an uncommon illness is something I've been keen on doing for a while now.

Why nosaferplace?

One of the questions I'm asked most is how I got to the name nosaferplace. I love answering this question. I started blogging because I felt so passionately about a book, that I had to tell the world about it. That book, was The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon and one of the taglines for the book is nosaferplace, so what better way to pay homage to my favourite series than naming my book blog after it? I'm also an Advocate for The Bone Season series, which is something I'm unbelievably proud of.
