More About the Author

Laura Quigley is an award-winning Plymouth-based writer who writes all kinds of fiction, non-fiction, theatre and articles. Best to start here:

"Bloody British History Plymouth" was a best-seller, and "South West Secret Agents", telling true stories of espionage in World War 2, comes out with the History Press in September 2014.

Her next publication though is pure fiction, out in July 2014 and it's the start of a time-travelling fiction series for all ages, called 'Spirit and the Magic Horsebox' ( - it's like Doctor Who meets Harry Potter and they're on horses battling an ancient supernatural army. It's the most fun she's ever had writing and she hopes you enjoy it as much as she's enjoyed working with the incredible team at Forelock Books.

You can also find her on facebook and Tumblr. There's a facebook page for each of her books:

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical help not pointless platitudes 31 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am lucky. I have never suffered from depression. Yes, I have had some very dark moments; moments so bleak I have entertained the notion of oblivion, but that's all they were - moments, notions. However, I am guilty of a lack of understanding of depression, in common I suspect, with most people. Despite all my attempts to be supportive of friends or family who suffer, there is always that tiny little nagging voice whispering, 'why can't you just cheer up for goodness sake'? and, I'm ashamed to admit, a sense of the suffer wallowing or being self-indulgent.

This book, written by a sufferer of depression, addresses those issues head on by taking depression and demystifying it, whilst at the same time debunking the myth that the power to beat depression lies extrinsically, in treatments or therapies. It is packed with practical advice and strategies developed from personal experience, ideas which the sufferer can adapt to their own lifestyle. Surely, a more lasting solution to a potentially long-term problem? The act of helping oneself must be the best solution and 'Ten Steps to Beat Depression' empowers the reader with the tools to take charge and overcome the sense of powerlessness which cripples so many people emotionally.

If you are a sufferer of depression or have a loved one who is suffering this book will be invaluable to you in terms of no-nonsense, achievable, practical steps to coping with and overcoming the 'black dog'. Written with humour, compassion and honesty, this is a true self-help book with the added bonus of being written from a position of authority and experience.

It's funny, it's short, it's free (£0.00 today), it's for Kindle (so you can start reading immediately), and it's even British!

WARNING: When you start reading, you may feel better. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and Very Reassuring 6 Aug 2012
By Charlie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, I'd like to thank Laura for such an honest and open insight to her own depression. I have been suffering with depression and anxiety for years too. I have read dozens of self help books and countless articles...I don't expect a miracle cure, but I have taken great comfort from her account and feel energised and hopeful that 10 seemingly easy and obvious steps might actually help!
It's great to read an insightful account by a fellow sufferer and not an over qualified expert with no personal experience in the field, spouting lots of confusing and conflicting advice which can be difficult to concentrate on when you're in the blackness.
You've got nothing to it today, support a struggling (soon to be best selling, I am sure) writer and share this with your friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten steps to beat depression 2 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
How refreshing to see that someone has had the courage to write about combating depression and talk about their own experiences of it - a lot of people don't, which is one of the big stigma's in our society. I have suffered from post natal depression and was lucky to get help quickly and find out that there were many people like my self who don't! I receommend this article, whole heartedly; written by a sufferer, who gives precious advice to those who choose to get better. Well written from the heart, with no miracle cures, but getting past that first step is simply a new beginning.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shambles 11 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A shuffle through random thoughts. Incoherent. Unhelpful for me. Possibly just an exercise I brainstorming the author mistakenly felt held some insight. Rather trying stuff.
