Meet the Author

Adele Nozedar has long been fascinated by the spiritual significance and healing power of birds. She is founder and owner of a music studio in the Brecon Beacons and formerly was one of the few women in the music industry to run a record label. Her own healing journey with birds began when a merlin sat on her window ledge when she was recovering from an operation. It allowed her to stroke it and was there every day of her convalescence. Only when she was better did the bird fly away.
