About Sally G. Cronin

sgc-headshot-2-10-dec-2016-dsc_2195

Thank you very much for stopping by. My name is Sally Georgina Cronin but you will find that I have had a number of variations online and for my books including Georgina Cronin and Sally Cronin.

After working in a number of industries for over 25 years, I decided that I wanted to pursue a completely different career, one that I had always been fascinated with. I began studying Nutrition and the human body twenty years ago and I opened my first diet advisory centre in Ireland in 1998. Over the last 18 years I have practiced in Ireland and the UK as well as written columns, articles and radio programmes on health and nutrition. I published my first book with a Canadian self-publisher in the late 90s and since then have republished that book and released nine others as part of our own self-publishing company. Apart from health I also enjoy writing fiction in the form of novels and short stories.

If you would like to read the long version….. here it is

I am one of those people who has led an eclectic life. My father was in the Royal Navy so we lived abroad several times and I only really settled down in the UK at age 14. My education suffered a little from switching between seven schools in different countries but I now have a repertoire of swear words second to none!

I trained as a secretary as my parents felt that my dream to be an actress and music diva was probably a little unrealistic!  I started well in my first job but a pregnant chair side assistant who developed a phobia to blood meant that I had to step into the shoes of dental nurse, a career I enjoyed before moving to the hospitality industry.

This resulted in me meeting my husband (known as room 40) nine years later and we had a whirlwind courtship over five weeks and married 36 years ago. We still have the whirlwind courtship moving over several continents to reach the final outpost here in on the East Coast of Ireland in a small harbour called Courtown. Luckily with the Worldwide Web it is still possible from this terrific place to keep in touch with all the amazing people we have met off and online.

I have spent a number of years in each of the following industries – Retail, Advertising and Telecommunications, radio and television and had a blast. I love learning new skills and eventually I might even master WordPress!

I have written short stories and poetry since a very young age and when I went ‘Indie’ in 1998 I combined my retraining as a Nutritional Therapist with this love of writing with my first book. I also began contributing columns in the media in the UK and Spain and my own monthly newsletter.

My first health book  was Size Matters which told the story of my journey from a very overweight 24 stone – 330lbs to a slimmish and healthier individual.

Over the last 18 years this love of writing has developed into another nine titles, my blog and also into Indie Publishing in 2004.  You will find more of that story in the directory. Moyhill Publishing.

header book covers

Over the last 12 years I have managed to fit radio and Internet television both in front of the microphone and camera and behind in a producing and directing role.  So whilst I never became the UK Esther Williams I did get to perform without getting too waterlogged.

My latest book was published in February 2017 – What’s in a Name –  Twenty Colourful Tales…. something for everyone I hope… stories of people and their lives.. the hopes, fears, relationships and sometimes survival.

In the summer a different bookTitle to be revealed A no nonsense, plain English guide to managing the people in our lives at home and at work. This is a manual that I developed over 25 years in my previous career as a manager across several industries. The training programme was completed by many young supervisors and managers finding their feet in the work environment; but it is also a guide to managing people in the more personal space of our own homes. Not just those we employ to carry out jobs for us from minor repairs to major refurbishment or rebuilds, but also our family and friends who sometimes need guidance to ensure a healthy and balanced relationship.

The R’s of Life – A guide to survival in a Modern World-written directly on the blog each week. – Romance, Revenge, ‘Rights’, Recognition…you get the picture. Coming soon.. the sequel to Tales from the Garden.. more fairy stories with an Irish twist.

  4. Wow, Sally, you have been very busy! As a former dental assistant with an aversion to blood, I salute you. You are the poster child for being a life-long learner, which is the motto of teachers across America. We seldom become what we trained to be. Or… We trained over and over again to renew and remake ourselves. I have done both. 🙂 And I see you have too!

    I live in Donegal and practiced as a natural medicines therapist for 20 years before I succumbed to fibromyalgia and auto immune disease. I eventually retrained in organic horticulture and taught part time in schools under Heritage in Schools scheme until recently. I blog and recently published my memoir and self help book “Watching the Daisies-Life Lessons on the Importance of Slow” on amazon kindle https://amazon.com/dp/B01N3M9VJ0 It might interest you or your readers. In any event it is great to connect
    Kind regards,

    Brigid

  15. Very interesting to learn more about you, Sally! Knowing that many swear words means you will never be at a loss for words. 🙂 I hope to one day meet you in person, wouldn’t that be fun? Not just for the swear words! LOL. xoxo

  16. I’d hoped to find a full-featured ABOUT – and finally noticed you’d linked it to your Gravitar profile (I think that’s how it gets on your pages, anyway). I loved reading about your varied background, and especially your love of life-long learning, which I share (and my first career was acting/directing – so that caught my eye as well).

    Your courtship redefines “whirlwind” for me – but, clearly evidenced by how long you have been married, when you know, you know. (lol re: settling down in Courtown)

    You have your work cut out for you where mastering WordPress is concerned, however — it seems to be a moving target! 🙂

  18. Delighted to meet you – another Irish connection in my life! And two of my very favourite authors are Irish – John O’Donohue (oh what a smorgasbord of words he offers!) and Maeve Binchy.
    Just curious – why is your other half know as room 40 ? Is it a secret, or can you tell ?

  23. Good morning Sally, I thought that this might be the best place to congratulate and thank you for the warm and friendly way that you treated Melissa A Joy(The Keys of The Origin, author) The whole piece was constructed in an easy to read format and I know that Melissa would have been very happy with the result. Thank you again. I hope that I will be able to recommend other Blackheath Dawn Writers to make the grade with you and wonderful Sally’s cafe. I see that geographically we are about as far apart as it is possible to be in these islands. I live near Dunwich in Suffolk, east Anglia.
    Very best regards
    Terry Gilbert-Fellows
