Hi, my name is Fliss Goldsmith. I am 36 years old and live in beautiful. A life -long Derby County supporter, wrestling fan, adorer of teddy bears, devotee of Queen and Freddie Mercury and all round biscuit aficionado. I have been blessed with two amazing children in Erin (7) and Rod (4) and a rock of a husband (Shannon) who supports my many and varied interests and pursuits in life. A writer and presenter with a love of finding common ground and opening conversations to bring people together. My hair colour changes more often than the lunar cycle and has been everything from blonde to black, red to blue, purple, green and everything in between. Learning to live with a chronic illness has afforded me patience, resilience, gratitude and the right to eat an entire packet of garibaldis and claim the raisin content as one of my five a day. Always hoping to add value wherever I can and honoured to meet and work with so many interesting people.
