Our First Children's Book
When I first had the idea to publish the story of how Nala and I met, a children’s book was the way I wanted to go. Our journey is a beautiful story to tell, but it also comes with important lessons for children of an early age and beyond. As the next generation, they will be the ones to continue to care for our planet and the animals on it. From the moment we met, mine and Nala’s journey has been shared with the world through videos and photographs. These wonderful illustrations are the perfect way to represent this. In Nala’s World, we worked with Frann to bring our story to life in an engaging way to spark the imagination and passion of young minds.

For our Adult Readers
I tell the story of how Nala and I met in our book Nala’s World and share how this little cat has completely changed my life. When I found my self going solo in this epic bike journey I had undertaken, I was unsure where to head next. Since I paired up with Nala, she has given me purpose and companionship . I’m also learning a lot of important lessons, not just about our planet and the people who live on it, but also about myself.
