About this deal

Ria Vos has choreographed 381 dances, of which 49 have been co-choreographed. Their first published stepsheet on CopperKnob is Drizabone from October 2007, with their most recent stepsheet of Second-hand Emotion in October 2023. I was unaware of the consequence and the bitter family feud that was developing before my very eyes. Protecting one another through those early traumas seemed impossible as those new nightmares continued within. The book was published two weeks ago and people are buying it I believe, I didn't have much confidence because I know it was trauma to me but I didn't think anybody else would be interested in it but it's been well recieved. The book took Maggie 17 years to write and follows the first 30 years of her life growing up in Johnson Fold.

The happiness of my family, the rebuilding of our lives, and the hope that one day the bitter family feud will be over, once and for all." As I grew and became a mother, those earlier dreams were hidden away and I devoted my life and all my pride in raising my children. They grew and had families of their own, and the empty nest syndrome was and still is too hard to bear. The book is about the first 30 years of my life which I wasn't in control of at that time, there were outside obstacles that I had to try and overcome. Maggie will also release a new book in the future, this time for children, showing them the history of growing up on the estate in Johnson Fold, like an Enid Blyton-style novel. She said: "Sara Cox spurred me on to write my book because when I was having a break from writing I read her book that was all about growing up in Bolton and I thought well if she can do it, I can.

All the details are in the book and I don't want to give too much away but I wrote quite a lot about the Johnson Fold estate where we were growing up. She spent her days writing the book in her spare time whilst using her other time working at the Royal Bolton Hospital. The fight to be able to put the past behind me and find that inner peace and happiness I had strived for all those years?

We want our comments to be a lively and valuable part of our community - a place where readers can debate and engage with the most important local issues. The ability to comment on our stories is a privilege, not a right, however, and that privilege may be withdrawn if it is abused or misused. With no-one to talk to throughout the trauma, I became isolated. Segregated. My family became strangers unaware of the inner torment I was facing. I just hope I've given Johnson Fold the justice because it's getting a bad reputation at the minute but it's just absolutely lovely. It states: "What happened within our family should never have happened. It shattered our lives like glass. I had counselling and they said to write everything down, so it was pen and paper at my dining room table when my children were small and I wrote when they were at school and it just carried on from there.

As a young teen I spent each waking hour being creative in any way I could. I had big dreams of becoming a writer, or a reporter, or maybe even a singer or an actress. Dreaming took me into another world. A world full of joy, that I wanted to live in forever. I wish I wouldn't have had to write this story, well the book wouldn't have been published without it but I wish the past hadn't have happened."
