“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. 
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”

Author of, 'Learning to play with a Lion’s Testicles'*.
*A South African expression that means, have the courage to have the courage.
This is a true story about a girl who goes to Africa to save the animals but when fear and death square off on the tiny game reserve, it is the animals that end up saving her.

 
Lou Grant reviewed Learning to Play with a Lion’s Testicles: Unexpected Gifts from the Animals of Africa on Amazon.com.
Despite a few grammar problems, I loved this story. I had heard about it on Jimmy Fallon’s show and was intrigued by the title. Melissa’s journey really hit home for me. Fear, regret and guilt are not welcome in our lives. Our time here is so precious. Too precious to be wasted. Melissa shared her experiences in overcoming those things and more. I will read again and again and again. 

Polly’s Daughter reviewed Learning to Play with a Lion’s Testicles: Unexpected Gifts from the Animals of Africa on Amazon.com.
A good surprise. Sounds like a joke, but a great book with a lot of laughs, tension and, for me, a surprise ending that explains the whole “journey”. I learned a lot from this book.
 
Elsie H Wilson reviewed Learning to Play with a Lion’s Testicles: Unexpected Gifts from the Animals of Africa on Amazon.com.
Could not put it down. Such an amazing book! Inspiration for courage and standing up in the world.

Book two currently a work in progress, release date and title TBA... 
To The Reader:
My task is to make you hear, to make you feel - and, above all, to make you see. 
That is all, and it is everything. 
Joseph Conrad
