Being an author is certainly a very demanding job.   But being the author of a ‘difficult to talk about’ let alone ‘write about’ subject is something that fills me with admiration.

‘A secret safe to tell’ written by Naomi Hunter, is a book which falls into this category.  Based on her own life experience, Naomi has bravely broached this subject not just as a way of working through her own healing, but as an important subject that needs to be discussed sensitively with young children.

As I read the online article in the Daily Mail Australia published just yesterday, it made me both sad and angry to learn that publishers had shied away from accepting the manuscript for publishing as it was a ‘risky topic to invest in’.   For all those who could have been helped by a book of this nature, the loss is achingly hard to acknowledge.

A secret safe to tell will be launched in Melbourne on Sunday 26th October: 3.-00 – 6.00pm at St Raphael, Nicholas and Irene: 531 Centre Road, Bentleigh when Naomi will be reading her book and taking questions. Further details are in this flyer.   Naomi can also be found on Facebook.
