This series of books captivates children from as young as 4 up til 12, providing an excellent platform for:

Parents

  • Education about the human body, medical tests, procedures and illnesses.
  • Parent-Child bonding (be ready for lots of questions)
  • Preparation for any unforeseen future circumstances (e.g. X-ray or needing stitches which is very common.)

Healthcare workers

Valuable tools in clinics to allay fears and explain procedures through child-friendly stories.

School Teachers

  • To use in class with children aged from 4-12 with many opportunities for extended learning.
  • Video book format available for classrooms with Interactive White Boards (IWB)

(curriculum guide coming soon).

A Twist in the Tale

In 2012, I was diagnosed with a rare but invisible life-threatening illness that has now rendered me almost bedridden, spending up to half a year in hospital, which is why I use digital means to reach out to children. Because of this, I can now find the time to realise my dream. I see my illness as a gift. I am also honored to be a Patient Leader (see below).

WEGO Health Awards Finalist

I am a patient advocate and health leader and a top 5 finalist in the 2017 Best in Show: YouTube WEGO Health Award category. It means so much to me because as a Patient Leader, I raise awareness, improve healthcare and bring a message of hope. My message is that suffering can be a gift, allowing dreams to come true and impact the lives of millions.

Family Life

I have a 24-year-old son who graduated one year early from NYU with the highest Summa Cum Laude honors. My youngest graduated in June 2018 from the Savannah College of Art and Design studying film where she has won numerous awards and is on the Dean's List. 

I believe in fostering positive family relationships, where children's God-given talents are nurtured.

Happy children do better at school and are healthier if they partner with parents.
