says of the book: "
My Life I Make
is a living legacy to her children and an example for others about the pleasures and wonderful gifts a parent can give to her children while alive. It is a collection of 65 thought-provoking, inspirational pieces based on the philosophy that each of us is responsible for the choices we make in life.

"Her writing dispenses effervescent hope. Her book captures her personal, contemporary 'Prodigal Son' experience and allows people to experience and benefit from the heightened knowledge that comes from relating to her sons using the lyrics of reggae music as a starting point. It has allowed her to express and sharpen her 'philosophy on the run' perspectives on life."
