I am a herbalist by trade and experienced menopause with all its trials and tribulations. It does not seem fair that women have the emotional trials that go with periods, menopause and childbirth - must be because we are strong amazon creatures! This Menopause book was my first attempt at writing so please forgive the many literary errors!
I did most of my writing from 2006 - 2014 when I travelled to Peru every year where i stayed in a small house in the Amazon Basin just 50mtrs from the river. I went to Peru to study the plant medicine and it was wonderful until my new friends systematically robbed me. When I had nothing left to steal, my personal safety was threatened which culminated in a shocking personal assault. I wrote about these years with total honesty and with my wicked sense of humour sharing my good times, my fearful times and my gut wrenching sad times. The memoir is called - 'Peru; The Beautiful, The Mystical and The Ugly'. I use a pseudonym for this book (Halle McQueen)
It is available in e-book and soft cover versions from most book distributors such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble etc.. I am a herbalist by trade ( I have a Ba Complimentay Medicine and an Adv. Dip. in Western herbal Medicine) so I use a lot of plant medicine in my writing.
