Biography – Zizzi Bonah

Zizzi Bonah is a 5ft 3″ lass born of Yorkshire parents. She spent 7 dedicated years (3 busking her self-penned songs on Bridlington, Scarborough and York streets), to gigging pubs/clubs in and around the North of England, gaining airplay on BBC Radio York and Humberside using her birth name, Ida Barker.

A change is as good as a reply (a line taken from one of Ida’s eclectic-electric songs) with this in mind she chose a new direction – to become an author.

In memory to her late grandparents, Ida (maiden name Bona) and Tommy Hullah who farmed within Nidderdale, the author’s nom de plume came about – merging Bona and Hullah into Bonah.

Zizzi’s phantasy fiction genre

Zizzi’s innovating characters are influenced by: wood, fire, earth, metal and water – all sources of dire changes and perilous reactions while having the power to control and/or destroy each other. Yet capable of creating the element that follows in the continuing cycle of existence – for better or bad!


#ENTRANGEMENT: WHERE COLOURS DON’T BLEED “He saved her life, only she can save his death!” Salt Delray is wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of her lover – through a mysterious aide she discovers he isn’t dead; he’s in limbo! She must escape and enter a hidden underworld to reunite with him, and together battledore against a very different, terrifying reality.


#GIRLROGUES: BRAGGADOCIO “They’re dangerous to love, more dangerous to ignore – which girl are you?” Zizzi Bonah’s collection of short stories and verses are for those with minds as broad as braggadocio, and nerves hard enough to rival a diamond from the first water.

Zizzi’s stories are rather like curry kisses; they’re repeatable …

Zizzi Bonah is well qualified to adapted her original story: Alice Returns Through The Looking-Glass, into A Musical Vaudeville Screenplay and also Stage Play (paperback/ebook) since her own career as a singer/songwriter/guitarist (using her birth name Ida Barker – Musician Union number: 484603) has included busking outside the music convention In The City Manchester 2005, Blur’s drummer Dave skirted by at an alarming pace, as did Beyonce’s dad/manager several times. Jamelia’s manager blanked her. While the late Tony Wilson did a U-turn and conversed – well, he said “Hello”.

Zizzi Bonah is published by She And The Cat’s Mother, all releases available from amazon
