Most of us have secrets, memories, and past actions; feelings and deeds hidden from friends, strangers, and sometimes even from ourselves; that were they exposed we would be mortified!  

Especially as an actress, director,  and as a fellow author,  I have to be willing to stand stripped bare of the safety of a mask - and instead, share these same vulnerabilities portrayed within each character for the world to see.  

Amazed pleasantly as if I am observing snowflakes fall to the ground and yet defy the expectation of melting, I absorb the phenomenal courage by those who pour open the depths of their souls in these beautiful stories before you which you now have the opportunity to share. I applaud them.

What people are saying about Daring to Share Volume One

Find Your Inner Strength Through These Storytellers

Daring To Share is a written invitation to explore the darker aspects of the incredibly brave storytellers' lives while triumphantly coming into the light. Since all of us have experienced our own dark nights of the soul, this collection of stories will resonate with all readers, whether you are currently experiencing a life challenge or you have come through one.

I enjoyed sinking into each chapter which allows the reader to digest fully the difficult journey that the authors have navigated in order to move forward in their lives. At times, exhilarating but yet still raw and gritty, you will be left breathless by the fierce honesty of the writing.

Daring To Share is a helpful guide for those who struggle and for those who wish to support them through their suffering. I highly recommend this book for anyone who strives to be more compassionate in a world that is rapidly forgetting to honour the unseen qualities of the heart.


To be reminded that everyone has a story is a very powerful thing. This book does just that. We are all on unique journeys and will all have our struggles and successes; it is inspiring to read about those of others to help remind us that no matter where we are, where our “there” is at this moment, we will eventually make it to “here”.

When I started reading this book, I had difficulty putting it down. Although each chapter is its own story, I was drawn to continue reading, wanting to learn of another journey, in awe of these authors' abilities to show such vulnerability and put it all out there.

Life Changing!

Great book! Eight people baring their souls and helping others searching for a way out and a purpose in life

A Beautiful Journey to Authenticity

Reading the stories in this book was a beautiful and emotional experience. They are so powerful that I read most of it through tears. I felt for the authors through their struggles, felt for myself and all the similar experiences that I've had to endure, but mostly I cried because of the beauty and hope that has come from their experiences. It gives me confidence that my own journey to authenticity has not been in vain and inspired me to be brave and create something beautiful from my pain


Raw authentic stories told by eight wonderful souls. Each of these stories engages you fully and encapsulates you in the writers truth,their journey of there to here.
