The Banbridge writer, who is also a former President of the Lisburn Chamber of Commerce, began her writing journey in 2017, following a shock cancer diagnosis of a very close family member.

Belinda used her writing as a form of self-therapy, changing those anxious and worrying thoughts into more positive and hopeful ones, creating inspirational quotes, reflections, and poems.

She went on to establish her Be Inspired To Be® brand, sharing some of her inspirational words across multiple social media platforms, with the aim of supporting others. She has grown her online following to over 140,000 global followers, with her daily words reaching over 1 million people monthly.

Just 72 hours after launching, Belinda’s book has now become a Best Seller through her direct sales channels.

Belinda would like to extend heartfelt thanks to her publisher Bookhub Publishing Group based in Galway, for their unwavering support, to Pamela Manson (The Donegal Artist) who created and painted her beautiful book cover and to her family, friends, local businesses and followers, for their amazing support and thus making her debut book a Best Seller already.
