A Medway woman who wrote a book about her battles with ME, which she's had since she was 15, has said she's "so overwhelmed" at becoming an award-winning author.

Jessica Taylor-Bearman, who is originally from Cliffe Woods near Rochester has struggled with the chronic condition for more than a decade, won in the People's Book Prize last night.

The virtual ceremony was held online as Jessica tuned in from her living room excited to get dressed up for the evening.

Her memoir titled A Girl Behind Dark Glasses was published in 2017 - the same year she married her husband Samuel at her parish church in Upnor.

It details her journey stuck in a hospital bed as a teenager for years with tubes keeping her alive as she battled the most severe form of the condition.

The book was named the non-fiction book of the year at the awards – voted for by the public – and has received critical acclaim for Jessica's "inspiring" voice and "fascinating and moving account".

Posting on social media, Jessica - who now lives in Essex - described winning the award as "the most surreal evening that I have had for a long time".
