Biographical Details:

Abigail has lived in several counties of the UK, but she started her days in Nottinghamshire. She currently lives in the Pennines on the edge of the city of Bradford.

Abigail received a degree in Archaeology from Bradford University, but has never worked in the field. Most of her employment history is in the field of sales, covering several industries.

For the last 11 years she has worked for a large DIY firm, predominantly specialising in the Kitchen and Bathroom department Personal Statement: I was a smoker for 20 years, and gave up by accident. All I wanted was a laugh and maybe to cut down a bit and instead I find I haven't had a cigarette since the 21st May 2014. I think every smoker should have the opportunity to try vaping for themselves in all it's permutations and without restrictions or molly-coddling.

My pet hate is hearing people say “there is nothing we can do about it”. If you believe in something and think it's worthwhile, you should stand by your convictions and make your voice heard.
