This book might look like a story about a woman becoming a magician but really it's about love and hope and persistence. It's a story for anyone with a dream, for anyone who has ever struggled with anxiety or body issues or not feeling good enough. It's a story to give you courage. Following a breakdown caused by a stressful business career combined with a serious eating disorder, Romany decided to ignore everyone's advice and to follow her dream of becoming an entertainer. Finding her first magic class aged 26, it took Romany 17 years of keeping the faith before she won the World Magic Awards in Las Vegas aged 43. 17 years of adventures, following her heart and listening to the whispers of her intuition. Now, Romany - Diva of Magic, performs her award-winning comedy magic show all over the world in beautiful theatres and on cruise ships. But as a chubby little girl, her dream of making it in showbiz didn't look likely. This is a rollercoaster story of determination and persistence-about deciding that you're going to walk stubbornly towards your heart's desire and not stop until you're there, trusting that the next step will appear-as if by magic.Read the reviews to see what readers are saying. "Bold, brave and beautiful. This book might just change your life. Romany is handing you her sunlight. Take it." Anthony Owen Producer of Derren Brown "When you decide and commit, believe and act as if it is already, all sorts of things you couldn't have dreamed possible come into play.Decide to buy this book (which is easy as it's totally affordable), and commit to reading it (which is also easy; it's a page-turner). Believe what she says (which is easy, because it's all true), and act as if (your wildest dreams are already coming true), and watch the real magic unfold! Gratitude to Romany for sharing her bright light and dark shadow with all of us. Read this book and learn more about the Diva of Magic. You'll be glad you did!!" Abigail McBride Magician, musician and priestess. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when I got it. Another autobiography? Huh. But holy noodles, it's almost impossible to put this book down. A book with twists and turns in it, magic in every chapter. I found hope and messages of encouragement as I go through my own journey. The author writes like she was born to be a writer. Every sentence enthralling, every chapter delicious. If you are looking for a true story about a life well lived, and signs that we are all so very much loved by the universe, then this is the book for you." Paula Mould Artist and Entrepreneur"I feel like I just met my best friend, you know, the one you love to be around. The one who grabs your hand and says, "let's adventure". I felt as though Romany were speaking to me, letting me know that you can build the life of my dreams. A wonderful read, making it easy to escape into the world of possibilities. If you need a beautiful pick me up, Spun into Gold could be the ticket!" Shannon Bolt
