Author Guest Post
I hope my readers will see that even though life may be tough, that just because we start off in one place, it doesn’t mean we have to stay where we are. Our lives are for us to change, and we can and my experiences prove we can. We have to be determined, emotionally strong and believe in ourselves. We can change certain elements of our lives when we realise both the need for change and that we are our own architects of that change.
I would like my readers to take away an overriding message of positivity, awareness, and insight into their lives and what they deal with through my experiences. After reading the book, I would like them to have more clarity and focus, on how they too can turn their lives around.
I hope my book touches them, in a way that writing my book has touched me. I hope my book will give the reader considerations, helping them to make sense of their past, where they are presently, so they are able to look to their future with confidence.
I hope they will also see that we have control, we also have choices and that we can change our thinking, that part will always be up to us.

About the Author
“Living with cerebral palsy is enormously difficult. But what if you never knew you had it? This is the incredible story of Ilana Estelle. Born the second of premature twins, an hour apart, from a young age Ilana knew she was different, but for all the wrong reasons. A child of the 60s, Ilana experienced first-hand the way that disability was, so often brushed under the carpet, not spoken about. Her constant physical and mental struggles made her feel isolated, alone, frustrated, and misunderstood… and it took 46 years for her to find out why. Part memoir, part motivational guide, Cerebral Palsy: a story ‘Finding the Calm After The Storm’ is Ilana’s open and honest journey from an angry, confused child, knowing something was wrong, not knowing what was wrong, what her disability was, or that there was a diagnosis, to the ‘real’ her – a courageous woman using her experiences and lessons to create inspiring messages about mental and physical health, positivity, resilience and change.”
