Hair loss for a woman can be a devastating blow. A blow to our self-esteem and our very identity.

As a former Registered Nurse, herself a hair loss sufferer, Bambi Staveley was astounded by the lack of information available for women with hair loss.

If you are a woman suffering from hair loss, you have probably searched the internet for answers, only to discover a world of contradictory information and a sea of so-called magic potions, drops, supplements and miracle cures all competing for our desperate dollar.

Hair Loss in Women is the result of over a decade of research. It contains everything you need to know to understand why this is happening to you and to give your hair the best chance at recovery.

The Farm

Memories of a Childhood on an Australian Rural Property

This book is a warm and amusing account of the author’s experiences in the 1970s and early ‘80s as she grew up on a rural property (Yarraglen) in Central West NSW. In these recollections, the author captures the charm and innocence of her rural childhood. The memoir has a fresh and witty voice. It provides the reader with an engaging snapshot of the resourcefulness, stoicism and pragmatism of Australian farmers. This book will resonate with readers who are interested in the minutiae and character of rural life in a period that was uncomplicated by screens, social media, and over-mechanisation.

The Elm Grove Story: A Mystical Journey

Edwin and Laurel were two agnostics who were bowled over by a clear, inner call that took them on a mystical adventure that proved beyond any doubt that God had a plan for their lives. This took them from suburban Sydney to the remote Snowy Mountains of NSW where they founded a spiritual retreat centre. As they struggled with disbelief and self-doubt, they experienced the awe of seeing amazing miracles unfold through daring to trust completely with open hearts and deep inner listening.

About the Author

Edwin was born in 1934 in Rhyl, North Wales. In 1960, as a musician he gained a posting with the Toronto Symphony orchestra and decided to travel through Europe, the Middle East and Australia on route to Canada. During his travels he fell ill and while recuperating in Australia he became enamoured and decided to stay. He combined his passion for music with becoming a successful business owner and he married and raised a family in Sydney, NSW. Laurel, born in Sydney in 1946, suffered a challenging family life. As a social worker she knew first-hand the difficulties that many people face in their lives and so her marriage to Edwin, along with her two children Jake and Natasha, this brought immense joy and contentment to her life. Neither Laurel nor Edwin held any strong religious convictions prior to when Laurel suffered a cardiac arrest in 1980 during major surgery. With Laurel’s amazing encounter with her Creator this brought huge change to her life and that of her family.Following a deep inner call this took them from their comfortable Sydney lifestyle to initially quite primitive living conditions in the Snowy Mountains of NSW where they founded a spiritual retreat centre. Within their deeply mystical experiences, immense workloads and early challenges, they then gifted their property in founding the charity, Elm Grove Sanctuary Trust where they welcomed and assisted all who came on a donation basis. In 1991, they formed a widely ecumenical community, the Little Followers of St. Francis and as life-professed Franciscans, they lived in deep trust and ‘by Grace’ as their vision unfolded. Their charity continues its work today.

No Ordinary Life

No Ordinary Life tells the story of a young couple’s experience of World War II and its influence on their lives. It’s a story of love and its resilience during extraordinarily difficult times, the time before, during and just after World War II. Their participation took them from war-torn Glasgow and the battlefields in France, North Africa and a small Greek Island in the Aegean, to life in a German POW Camp and a timber camp in the Highlands of Scotland. When the war finally ended, they left Scotland as ‘Ten Pound Poms’ and established a new life in Australia, far away from memories that were best left behind. This book is as much about the times in which they lived as it is about them.

About the Author

Anne is a retired science teacher who started her working life as a medical scientist. She followed a passion to become a teacher and taught Science in the western suburbs of Sydney before taking up a position at a large independent school in the city where she taught for thirty years. Retirement brought time to write, first about her children and the remarkable journey they shared in The Gift of Adoption, and then about her parents in her new book, No Ordinary Life. ‘My parents’ lives were ordinary for the time, but the times in which they lived their young lives were anything but ordinary. They weren’t the heroes of war recorded in history books, but they were heroic; they were part of the backbone on which victory was built. Although their story wasn’t unusual for the time, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be told.’
