Story sharers are brave. Reading these tales I feel the authors working through their experiences, gathering the insight only passing time can bring - and as they weave their newly discovered knowledge into their Tales of Courage - you feel less voyeuristic than you might expect and more a part of their journey. It's a gift for us to read such personal encounters - to be informed, inspired and entertained. In the age of online oversharing - we are at risk of becoming immune to people's stories - but here is a collection of tales you can connect with - by real people sharing for so many reasons - and no clicks required. All they ask is to read, consider and have courage. Sharron Attwood - Personal Brand Consultant. The stories in Tales of Courage are ones of movement - and that's what courage is. Not getting stuck. Moving onwards. Gathering momentum and harnessing the brave. These stories are heart-warming, heartbreaking, funny, and insightful. They are stories of grit, determination, and a unique ability to go through life wearing different 'hats' while quietly giving the middle finger to the expectations of others. The writers of Tales of Courage showcase how each of them came to their destination, empowering the reader to break the shackles of their own adversity and take the first step forward. Jay Crisp Crow - Writer and Copywriting Coach. The compelling stories in this book highlight that courage can be embodied in minutes, months or even years. These stories take us from fly-on-the- wall insights to full immersion as these courageous authors welcome us into a portion of their lives. The Oxford Dictionary defines courage as; A disregard for fear, and this resonated with me as I found myself, wide-eyed turning the pages for more. It is extraordinary how storytelling instantly connects us, and Lisa Evans curates her books with warmth, heart and insight. Anastasia Carlson - Writer and Performer. The stories in Tales of Courage show the triumph of human spirit. Easy to read, words and feelings that connect to the heart we are taken on journeys through many conditions, situations and even different eras. Readers will feel part of the journey, invested in the outcome and in some tales nodding in agreement when personal memories mirror the written events. The language draws us in as we connect with each voice. Join these journeys, share their triumphs, you won't regret it. Linda M. Blackshaw - Author and Energy Healer. These beautiful Tales of Courage are amazing, the courage is apparent in the telling of these stories, both on the stage and in this book. The authors of these tales have left me in awe being so open about the scarier, challenging and the not-so-nice moments of their lives. The resilience, perseverance and vulnerability expressed is inspiring. To see what real people, like you and me, are capable of achieving when the going gets tough and life throws it's curve balls - these Tales of Courage are a must-read! Leesa Hart - Writer and Landscape Designer.
