A Step Up For Stepfamilies

Marcia Watts

Anyone on the journey of becoming or being in a stepfamily knows that stepfamily life is complex. Members can often feel isolated, misunderstood and unrecognised.

Who do we talk to about our struggles? Who understands the unique challenges we face and can validate our often very conflicted feelings? Who and where do we turn to for guidance, support and encouragement and a sense of direction when everything feels chaotic and unpredictable?

Marcia Watts – step-parent, parent, wife, relationships counsellor and psychotherapist – knows the reality of being in a stepfamily from both personal and professional experience. In A Step Up for Stepfamilies, Marcia shares heartfelt, practical and reassuring research and strategies to empower you to cultivate your own thriving, resilient and loving stepfamily. She shows that being in a stepfamily can be enjoyable and rewarding, especially when armed with constructive and helpful tools to confidently step up challenges.

With real-life anecdotes, advice on parenting, grief, ex-factors and looking after yourself, and resources for professionals, A Step Up For Stepfamilies is the essential handbook to successfully navigate stepfamily life.

  • Understand how big buyers think

The Olive Kiss

Shona Cox

The Olive Kiss tells the story of the unknown nuance between a master craftsman and a wealthy Judean merchant – an evolving friendship that leads to jealousy, envy and fatal mistakes.

Published in 2017, The Olive Kiss takes an ancient story and re-imagines it. With original artwork commissioned as printed works, The Olive Kiss is a study of poetry, literary exploration and art. Written in the visual style of cinematic prose, peppered with lyrical descriptions and focusing on the intimate relationships between characters known to the biblical world, The Olive Kiss is both a prayer and a quest for the great ‘what if?’

‘Brilliant and beautiful’ with visionary insight and turn of phrase, Shona Cox has crafted the poetry and landscape of the ancient world sublimely. Yet, the characters remain modern, their tension and demands completely on trend with everyday life, of friendship, desire, intrigue, distrust, and loss. The Olive Kiss is written for now, its message of old resonating through time to strike a chord in our contemporary buzz. Listen, absorb and seek the more is the mantra of this work.
