Shelly Allmark

Personal assistant to Marcia M Spence
Transcriber, reader and reviewer

I have been a strong advocate for Disability Rights for 14 years, I also hold qualifications in Receptive, Productive and, Conversational British Sign Language (B.S.L) CACDP.

" Reading along with writing as always been very natural to me. I’ve been a keen avid reader from a very young age. I’ve escaped reality into a vast genre of books by various authors, which has developed different styles. I have embraced what seems like a million journeys, and have felt the emotions of each character I became acquainted with. I have a passion for literature, it sparks my imagination, my relationship with books has granted me the opportunity to gain knowledge and continue to learn and absorb the enchantment that empowers the deepest secret part of my spirit.
