Interviews

What began as a way of comforting my own son Elijah when he was sad that I was going to work and he was going to pre-school, became my book The Invisible String

Children of all ages ( And yes! Adults too!) feel a great sense of peace and joy realizing that we are all connected to the ones that we love... (pets, friends, grandparents, cousins etc... and especially those that have passed on)...through the Invisible String. A string that can never be lost, cut, or torn. A string that can reach all the way to the moon or down to the ocean floor. A string that anger, time, or bad feelings can ever make go away. 

No-one is too young or too old to remember that we are never, really all alone. God Bless you all and never forget about The String. Bye for now, may your strings soar far and wide... and let's spread the word!!!

Love, Patrice
