I am an Author
I am a Publisher
I have BiPolar
My name is Toby Abbs
and I am an author of Self-Help books and also manage my own publishing
I was born in London in 1973 and moved to Newquay, Cornwall UK as a child where I grew up there to have the best childhood surfing by the sea. I have spent most of my adult life back in London where I am now the most happiest. After 15+ long years in IT Infrastructure and Security I finally made a life changing decision and decided to live a dream and do something meaningful. To help change perception of mental health issues and to also help people overcome life changing illness.
In October of 2013 I launched a personal blog called "Walking Paradox" it is a raw account of how I overcame and learned to live with my BiPolar. (Type 1 rapid cycler). In November of 2013 I closed my IT company down and started a new company called "Type One Publishing Ltd". With the aim being to self-publish my books and presentations to a wider audience.
My first book is titled "Tearing Down The Layers" and it will be released soon. It is a self help book on how to live with a life changing illness. It is revolutionary in approach in that no one has ever made a self help book this way before.
I hope you will like it. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to visit my site.
