Over the years, many books have had a profound impact on my life. They are so diverse that I am not even going to try and put them into any particular order. I am going to be adding to this list as I go along, including books I have written.
One of the most influential authors of all time – in my humble opinion – is Paulo Coelho. Thanks to him, I gained a new perspective on the mystical. And, thanks to Dr. Joe Dispenza, I have been able to look at the science behind ‘brain change’ and how to heal by thought alone. I have also embraced the readings of Gregg Braden, the late Dr. Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay, and many other authors. Whilst a lot of my reading has been in the self-help genre, I have also read books beyond this scope.
I hope that by sharing these books with you, you too will become inspired to turn the pages of a novel or two, and perhaps even find a book that will change your life forever.
With much love,

Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found.
The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, above all, following our dreams.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love movie and book really had a profound effect on my life. Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from her books for years.
Now she digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration.
In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they each struggle to keep a roof over their heads.
Hailed as “wrenching and revelatory” (The Nation), “vivid and unsettling” (New York Review of Books), Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of 21st Century America’s most devastating problems.
This is a practical guide to help you let go of all that you are not and love all that you are. It has carefully been thought out, both in design and application. At the end of each chapter you will find a set of questions to help you dig deeper than you would on your own. It helps you take some really deep dives to get to the root cause of your emotional turmoil, and then it helps you pull out the roots so that you can live a truly fulfilling life of love, truth, compassion and joy.
Is it possible to heal by thought alone—without drugs or surgery?
The truth is that it happens more often than you might expect. In You Are the Placebo, Dr. Joe Dispenza shares numerous documented cases of those who reversed cancer, heart disease, depression, crippling arthritis, and even the tremors of Parkinson’s disease by believing in a placebo.
A Course in Miracles has become a contemporary spiritual classic. Since it was originally published in 1976, readers have recognized in its words truths that they had never heard before, yet somewhere inside seemed to have always known.
I have had these amazing teachings since 2017, and will continue to learn and teach the wisdom that it gives us.
