The Flight Home: Nine Journeys – Nine Lessons
On November 18th, 2023, I announced the prelaunch of my latest book, The Flight Home.
I started writing this book on the Gold Coast, Australia, on a crisp morning in July 2022 after having a coffee with my amazing mother-in-law, Dianne, who encouraged me to write a book and share my story.
Due to the pandemic, I was separated from my husband and my dog for over a year. I was single-parenting our 2 daughters, unemployed in a new country, trying to answer one question…
I found my answer by looking into my past and, as Steve Jobs said, connecting the dots. I went back to my childhood, revisiting all the places I lived in, from France to Brazil, Taiwan and more.
This book is my life lessons, from overcoming discrimination to learning 6 languages and different cultures, making friends across 4 continents, moving alone to China 20 years ago with a one-way ticket, discovering loss and love, completing an Ironman, and so much more.
Above all, this book is my message: a message of positivity and ownership to help you reconnect with your values and find your purpose in life.
Spoiler alert: some stories will make you smile, others laugh and perhaps shed a tear. I hope my book inspires you to connect the dots of your story and even share it one day!
This is my first time working with an entire team to launch a book:
Publisher: Earnshaw Books
Writing Mentor: Australian bestseller author and film director Vicki Bennett
Editor: Ian Mathieson
Photographer: George Papadopoulos
