By Jayne Wallace
Jayne Wallace's early life was blighted by an incredibly painful condition that almost led her to turn her back on her spirit guide, Star, and her calling to be a psychic medium. At the age of 12 she was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and registered disabled. Fighting against her illness and dealing with the loss of her mother, it was hard to accept Star in her life. But Jayne eventually made peace with Star, who brought her an amazing gift - a connection with her mother in the spirit world. As Star helped Jayne, so Jayne has gone on to help others, channelling loved ones on the Other Side, offering guidance for the future, and hope and healing to those who are grieving. This is the most inspiring page turner on the psychic experience in the market today.

My Life on a Plate
By Kelis Rogers

Driven by the speed and the intensity in the kitchen, Kelis' passion behind watching her mother cook inspired her to roll up her sleeves.

At age 17, Kelis signed her first recording contract and began to travel the world. She discovered local outdoor markets and tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurants and considered them the hidden treasures of her journeys.

This book is a collection of her favourite recipes. It features a mix of foods from her Puerto Rican heritage, such as Pernil (Puerto Rican Pork Shoulder), Arroz con Gandules, and Shrimp Alcapurias along with dishes she created after discovering them on her travels around the world such as Malay Curry Chicken and Swedish Meatballs.
