It has taken me nearly seven years to finish this project. The process has been both a personal adventure and an emotional rollercoaster. So many times, I thought about giving up – “How could a dyslexic girl who didn’t go to university, write a book?” – the spirit of the story kept me going, it’s what Elizabeth Gilbert calls ‘Big Magic.’
My biggest hope for this book is that you connect with it. That you will read it and smile, laugh, and cry with me. I hope that it may comfort someone going through trauma or help someone realise that there can be light at the end of what may seem like a hopeless situation.
