Many of you know I have the great pleasure to work with a number of extremely talented creative private clients. Together, we bring their stories to life in whatever genre they desire. In the case of Andrea Nair, the obvious outlet & clear choice is writing.
This month marks the ‘shout out loud’ launch of her most recent work, ‘stripped down running‘. The early accolades are in and are out of this world enthusiastic! I was the very fortunate ‘editor, artist developer, friend along the way’. Andrea’s first fictional novel is a tale of awakening, as the young heroine struggles to find her place in the world, while her life is continually mired in difficulty and hopelessness. Outwardly, Hannah Friesen appears to have a wonderful life. She is intelligent, funny, adventurous, attractive… but she is far from happy. What shows outwardly masks an inner personal turmoil. The narrative moves along at breakneck speed, as Hannah tries to outrun her past, finding that no amount of distance covered can let her escape what she ultimately must face. Trust me, this is the perfect choice for spring and summer reading!
Although a fictional story, the character and her challenges are inspired by the clients Andrea has worked with in her years as a psychotherapist. All personal elements have been changed of course, but the struggles of this young woman convey very real lessons to the reader about how disconnection can lead to heartbreak and also, how building relationships of value are still possible for those willing to try.
Consider this your invitation to join us at the launch. Seriously, we would love to see you!
