Then one sunny summer day she gets the news that she has a serious, life threatening cancer.  Her treatments are so intense that she needs to stop working in order to get through them and give her body a fighting chance.  Just when Michelle is mentally coming to grips with her diagnosis, she is struck by not one, but two devastating tragedies that cause her to spiral into the depths of despair.  This is a gut wrenching, funny, heart-breaking story of Michelle's fight through illness, shock and grief to get her life back and find a new normal.

Thanks Ashley, I'm so thrilled to have this book out so it can be a resource to others. Oh and thanks for the complement on my headshot. Really it is the talent of Pascale from Gadbois Photography that we need to credit.

Thank you Jean. If you cannot order from SA, let me know and I'll send you a copy. I was thinking of you the other day. Remember when we slept on the floor in your little flat in Jo'burg? So so long ago. did you know my house on Cambridge Road is all gone now :-( So sad. Keep on trucking my old friend. I plan on making a trip back to SA in 2014 to show my family my roots and heritage. It is all a matter of saving for the holiday. I'm putting it out to the universe that this will be. I must come full circle to the land of my birth. :-)

LOVE the front cover of your book, its refreshing and makes me think of the freedom one felt in youth before life got too complicated and heavy. Im happy to say that I too climbed out of the chains that held me in place and decided to take the path less travelled into finding my authentic self and being free to really be me again! trooper on and thanks for sharing.
