Life Song

Release date: 14th October 2013

‘Could Mavis live the rest of her life as she’d been living? She couldn’t, not now she’d glimpsed another world, fleeting though that vision had been.’

It takes a bold woman to choose the path less travelled.

Mavis was born to be a songbird. Her parents named her after one, a bird with a distinctive song worthy of poetry. With her wings clipped by circumstance, Mavis spent six years of her life grounded and her dream of soaring flight almost forgotten. After a time of making do, Mavis unexpectedly discovers that she has a choice: accept a life that is ‘ordinary’ or strive to rise above her circumstance, realise her potential, and be amongst the one percent that shine.


In and Out of Step

“Aren’t you tired of a past littered with escapes? Think about the woman you’re becoming!” Leonie said, trying to prevent Cassie’s flight. “You could be going from the frying pan into the fire.”

The past denied and her dance championship dreams discarded, Cassie Sleight leaves home. In the seemingly idyllic coastal town of Keimera, she starts a career on the English staff of the local high school. Exposure to Mark Talbut, a man struggling to be modern yet threatened by power shifts in the workplace and in society, causes Cassie to assess her reactions as a woman and a teacher. As she does so, the secrets of her past surface. Will that past continue to choreograph Cassie’s present steps? What sort of woman does she become?
