Fabulous Reader Feedback

SigningFraying

It’s great getting reader responses to Fraying. So many people whose parents have had dementia have written to me, and I find their stories so moving.

Here’s a few lines received this week.
‘I purchased a copy of Fraying and I simply couldn’t put it down. It was like I was reading my own life experiences with my mother… Thank you so much for writing this story for me too. It will remain a most treasured book on my bookshelf and shared with others.’

All I can say is thank you, thank you to readers.
The more we share our stories, the richer the community. Stories, after all, are our treasures.

How fab, having Alzheimer’s Australia VIC endorse my latest book, Fraying: Mum, memory loss, the medical maze and me, as a good read.
Underneath this endorsement Carers Victoria commented: ‘It is great. We are looking at having Michele speak with carers during National Carers Week in October. Very insightful and honest.’
As the author, I am delighted by this positive response. (And all the likes.) Great to see that news about the book is spreading.
