Sign in with Ale­sha

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EVENTS -

Ale­sha Dixon will be meet­ing fans in Blue­wa­ter this week when the Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent judge will be sign­ing copies of her de­but book, Light­ning Girl.

It’s the story of 11 year-old su­per­hero Aurora who has to find a way to bal­ance the prob­lems she faces at school while learn­ing how to con­trol her new-found pow­ers.

The mum-of-one said: “My in­spi­ra­tion to cre­ate a su­per­hero be­gan with want­ing my young daugh­ter to feel em­pow­ered. It’s been a dream to cre­ate a strong role model that any child can look up to.” The 39-year-old’s ca­reer started out as a singer with pop group Mis-teeq be­fore set­ting out on her own in 2005. Two years later she won Strictly Come Danc­ing, be­fore go­ing on to join the judg­ing panel at the BBC show.

She will be at Water­stones, Blue­wa­ter on Fri­day, April 6 at 3pm.
