21 Olive Trees the Book

21 OLIVE TREES is more than just a book. It is my personal journey of transformation portrayed as a collection of letters and poetry I wrote to my son Blaise, after his death. After each of the letters, 21 fable narratives unfold, further illuminating this intimate look at coping with loss and acceptance that intrigues, inspires, and gives hope to readers looking for answers about life and death, and those who long to transform their grief into something beautiful.

Voices of Transformation: The Trilogy
Part One: Coming Home

Glow: “Coming Home”, recounts my journey of self-discovery throughout the African continent and how I learned to transform my suffering into highly positive vibes through the practice of Love in Action.

I have always been a curious and empathic person. It is that sensitivity that has led me to travel the world and bring aid wherever I go, be it in the form of bringing in the funds to renovate an entire orphanage in Kenya, a run-down clinic in Malawi, or to start my own animal sanctuary in Sicily, Italy. I am also a nonprofit photographer who has had the privilege of working with countless organizations around the world.
