As a child, Gaynor had many roles to play - parent to her baby brother, rescuer to her beaten mother and, most of all, keeper of the family secrets. She witnessed and experienced things that no child should and, aged 13, she took her first sip of whisky and thought she’d found sanctuary. She grew up fast and was soon bunking off school and spending all her time in pubs, being bought drinks by unsavoury men. Gaynor’s story illustrates how easy it is to find yourself out of control. Small, slippery steps gradually got her into a horrific situation involving abusive men, drink, drugs, prostitution, self-harm and serious mental illness which stripped her of the ability to love herself or even her daughter. Having endured more than humanly possible and been a victim of her own destructive behaviour for so long, Gaynor finally managed to take steps to beat her demons for good. One Little Speck is the remarkable story of her journey from hopeless rock-bottom to recovery. Gaynor is now a qualified counsellor who hopes to help others overcome their addictions. She lives in Essex with her partner and is a proud mum to her law-graduate daughter.
