Andrea Ballance was ordained as a Buddhist nun and spent a decade developing the skills of mindfulness and compassion. Eventually tiring of monastic life, she obtained a degree in Art in the Community and began honing her skills as a writer. When not busy raising two children, she is excited to be part of making the world a kinder, brighter and more magical place - one project at a time.
