AuthorAbi May was born in the south of England, of Russian/Polish ancestry. Her conversion to Christianity as a young adult was a defining point in her life and the motivation for spending twenty-five years in the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Eastern Europe, where she taught and supported others in their faith walk. She now lives with her husband John in Staffordshire.
An experienced teacher of English (qualified with PGCE and CELTA), over the years Abi developed a talent for creative writing and editing. She has compiled and edited ten anthologies to date, with over 100,000 copies in circulation, and regularly publishes inspirational articles. Her work has largely centred on faith-based themes, although she also sits on the management board of a local health charity and does other volunteer work.
The tragedy of losing both of her children prematurely has had an overarching impact on Abi’s life, and much of her focus is now on bereavement support.
