About the Author

Hi and thank you for letting me share my thoughts with you.

jenny-witterick

This is my first book, but it feels like something that has been waiting for me for a while.

I just had to be still enough to hear it. As the words flowed and formed, shaping ideas in their dance, it felt divine.

Writing was a process far more intimate than I could have predicted. To be authentic and honest, it is your own life that you draw upon and so, telling a story reveals the truths which reside in your own heart.

I loved creating this story. To be able say that anything is possible if we connect with each other through kindness, understanding and courage and to do it with reference to true events, well that was exhilarating.

If this story somehow manages to touch you, if it somehow manages to remind you of  your own humanity, then I will be incredibly happy.

Living with gratitude,

Jenny
