‘Ada and Her Magic Feather’ (2022) is complete.
I am overjoyed with the outcome of this love project! My soul tribe has worked tirelessly to ensure Ada, Kokum, and Magic Feather come to life in a way that is meaningful for girls and women. This book series begins with this first book about a lesson in setting healthy boundaries. Valuable learning for girls and presented in a way to honour our daughters’ need to learn about self-love and respect.
The setting is based on conversations and the learning that takes place around Kokum’s kitchen table. Ada, a courageous 8-year-old girl discloses she is feeling bullied by a girl at school. This story shows how Ada processes her very real emotions about the situation through to how she confronts the situation for herself.
This book is intended to show examples of how we demonstrate self-love and is written through a child’s lens.
There are no cliche messages about having to make friends with everyone and we all live happily ever after. Straight to the point and sharing the process for children to learn how to apply values-based strategies like setting healthy boundaries in relationships.
I plan to have it live for sale on Amazon by the end of June. Being Metis, I feel like June is a powerful month for remembrance of our people’s roots in Canada and with the countless tragedies to our children, girls, and women, I feel it’s the best month of the year to share Ada and Magic Feather with the world.
I’ve dreamed of being a Canadian author. An early reader myself, and reading to my children even while pregnant, a love for reading has proven to be important throughout life.
Although I have written and published two other books, valuable resources for conflict management, writing children’s books has been a dream come true.
I am grateful beyond measure for this love project and am so excited to hear your feedback!
Sending you all light and love,

If you are an educator, parent, or grandparent and looking for practical strategies to use with children, concepts to understand, and ideas that can be easily implemented about how to create space for self and others, you have landed in the right spot.
Children learn how to solve problems the same way they learn how to read, write, and add. Like reading, writing, and adding, there are three specific components to solving problems. These are teachable skills children can learn at any age.
