my inspirational books
the journey of the slim soul
I published my first book in 2009, a little over ten years after I wrote my first book.
What is inspired me? My own frustration at all the diets out there that do not work. I had been struggling with body confidence and a feeling of being fat all my life. My mother put me on a diet at the age of twelve when I was not even fat. She and her mother were obsessed with weight loss. My mother was almost always on a diet. We had the same body shape, unlike my sister, so she enrolled me into her crazy eating habits. I know she meant well. She thought she was doing me a favour but instead, she destroyed my self confidence. I later learnt that she had been suffering from anorexia when she was younger.
The Journey of the Slim Soul offers a holistic approach to slimming without dieting, strenuous exercise and calorie counting. It offers seven golden steps to slimming, the first one being to love yourself as you are today. This is the book that signed me an agent. It is no longer available for sale as a paperback. However, as I am writing the sequel to it which is called the Pleasure Diet, if you sign up for my Pleasure Diet newsletter, you will receive the Journey of the Slim Soul as a PDF for free.
My father who art in heaven
in 2008, my father was diagnosed with a brain tumour. I knew it was the modality he chose to leave this earth. In the fall of 2013, his tumour took a turn for the worse and he started going downhill. We had planned to visit him in France with my husband and my younger two children (then seven and two) but given that I wasn’t sure what I would find, we decided that it would be best if I went alone. This is where my memoir My Father Who Art In Heaven starts. This first trip to visit him as he started to lose both his speech and balance and needed a wheelchair for the first time in his life.
My Father Who Art In Heaven is not a morbid book. It is a story of magic, love and forgiveness. From that trip in November 2013 until the day he died on the 6th of March 2014, I experienced truly inspiring moments and a reunion with my Dad that I would have never imagined possible given that he could no longer speak. It confirmed to me everything I believed about life, death and what happens to us after we die. As a medium, I was not sure if I would stand the test of my own father dying but I was not disappointed. On the actual day of his death, I saw him ascend into heaven as he could not wait to share his joy.
My Father Who Art in Heaven is not available for sale yet but I plan to release it as an ebook in the summer 2018. If you are interested in buying it, why not join my newsletter so that you don’t miss on the launch. Click on the link below to sign up.
