In 2017 Penny Castle gave up her career as an executive coach and happiness consultant to care for her terminally ill son, Josh.

Shortly before his death, Joshua, outlined the plot of a time travel adventure book he wanted to write. He didn't get the chance to complete his manuscript before his death in January 2018. Penny completed his story posthumously and Cure is planned to be released in August 2018.

Penny is the author of the popular blog, http://www.mygardencrush.co.za.

Her humorous, self-help memoir, Cultivating Happiness, is due for publication in late 2018.

It's a bit of a leap of faith for me because I had never considered writing science fiction!(less)

Chris didn’t drop like a stone. He toppled, rigidly, like a falling tree. The security camera that caught his seizure shows a millisecond of confusion before he falls, with surprising grace, over the edge of the metre-high platform and onto the concrete floor. I wince even thinking about how his hands didn’t reach out to break his fall; how his head could have – but didn’t – hit the floor first...

Really good idea for a first time author. I found it easy and encouraging and landed the idea of writer and entrepreneur well. I'd recommend it for any new writers who are ready to start marketing their work.
