What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As it has been for so many, this year has been a struggle for me. Whilst being out of a job during the pandemic I felt at my lowest mentally. I knew I needed to get positive thoughts back in my life and my creative juices flowing, but felt uninspired. I decided to write a piece about the best years of my life as a sort of therapy and it transpired into a book which I have since published.
My love for nostalgia and pop culture, combined with my experience in content writing inspired me to take up writing.
Acoustic Songs – Music. The 90’s and early 00’s churned out a few decent acoustic numbers so I
believe the first playlist is in order. Some artists may not have been big enough during the era to
warrant their own section in this book, so I’ve come up with a playlist of those one off acoustic
numbers that will hopefully bring back some memories. If not, perhaps you’ll discover
something you’ve been missing.

Addams Family, The – Movie. They’re creepy, they’re kooky and they give you squad goals.
The movie was based on the original 60’s TV show. In 1991 the pale gang was brought back to
our screens. A sequel followed, Addams Family Values, which was just as good. The film stars
Anjelica Huston looking like a total gothic goddess and Christina Ricci, as the iconic Wednesday
Addams. The film has a colourful array of characters including Cousin It, who should be the face
of L’Oreal with those locks. There’s also the detached hand that roams around the mansion, The
Thing. Oh don’t worry, he’s armless! You’ve got almost 200 more pages of this comedy gold!
Aerosmith – Music. Even though Aerosmith started out in the 70’s, the band saw great success in
the early 90’s. Most successful hits included “Livin on the Edge”, “Cryin”, “Crazy”, “Don’t
Wanna Miss a Thing” and “Jaded”. No doubt, if you were a kid growing up in the 90’s then
“Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” was your first awkward slow dance at a school disco.
Agassi, Andre – Sports. Who remembers the luscious locks of 90s tennis favourite, Andre
Agassi? I mean he was a great tennis player and everything but that hair really stole the show.
Well it did, until he shaved it all off and then just became another great tennis player. The US
sportsman turned pro in the late 80’s but won his first Wimbledon in 1992. From there he went
on to win 7 singles championships, an Olympic gold medal, 60 ATP titles in total. A true tennis
Aguilera, Christina – Music. Famous Person. The early days of Christina (Xtina) were amazing.
There were successful hits such as “Genie in a Bottle”, which was obviously about her love for
the Disney classic, Aladdin.. right? As well as “What a Girl Wants” and “Come on Over”. I
loved watching her music videos and making up dance routines with my friends. I’m sure the
boys felt the same. In 2001, she went on to duet with Ricky Martin in “Nobody Wants to be
Lonely”. She was also part of the most killer collab there’s been, “Moulin Rouge”, with Pink,
Mya, Lil Kim and Missy Elliott. Flash forward one year and what on earth happened to our
innocent, baby angel Xtina!? Those dreads, those raunchy outfits!? Songs released around this
time were “Beautiful”, “Dirrrty”, “Fighter”, “Can’t Hold Us Down” and “Voice Within”. Don’t
get me wrong, I enjoyed all of these songs but did prefer Xtina’s fresh faced and less leather
