I only have a few signed copies left on my desk... the rest have gone.It's a surreal feeling to think that only a short while ago this story was shifting and evolving as we sat on upturned paint tins in the backyards of strangers. I thought I'd attach one of my favorite pictures of Ingrid. This moment was captured in the book. If you would like a signed copy - please message me πŸ’›www.shinealight-thebook.co.za ...

"Thank you for telling your story," I whispered.She looked at me and smiled.And as we sipped our tea together, I watched the winding down of a day - just a regular day - and I felt so humbled to be apart of it. ...

I'm not sure if you believe in the universe being a 'messenger.' I'm not even sure I believe it myself. But I'll never forget the feeling I got as I looked over at Ingrid sitting beside me one morning and said, 'I want to write a book.' It was like a bolt of lightning. The peculiar thing with what I had just said, was that up until that exact moment in time, I had never ever considered writing a book before. Today, almost 5 years later, I find myself catching my breath, pausing ... as I hold the book in my hands and turn the pages, reflecting back on this unforgettable, life changing experience. To Ingrid, the community of Ocean View and to those who walked this journey with me, thank you. For more information and to read the first chapter: www.shinealight-thebook.co.za'Shine a Light' will be available in all major bookstores within South Africa. ...
