Rebecca StantErnest / November 1, 2014

In the second round of Authors on Friedreich’s Ataxia, I present my Q&A with Rebecca Stant, a 42-year-old Australian author, who is part of the international literacy project against Friedreich’s Ataxia.


Michell: Rebecca, please let our viewers know about your recent project and how you decided to join it?
Rebecca: The project was started by Maria Blasco Gamarra, who deserves praise for initiating such an unusual and unique project. It is a collaborative effort from many writers around the world who have joined forces to raise money to find a cure for Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA). To me, the project provides a positive, creative, and entertaining way for those affected by FA to actively contribute towards a cure for this relentless disease.
Michell: There is something similar with each of the writers for this project. What is that?

The legacy of Marie Schlau: Our novel is ready for fundraising!

The life of Marie Schlau, a German Jewish girl born in 1833 hides great unsolved mysteries: accidents, disappearances, enigmas, unknown diagnoses, disturbing murders, love, tenderness, greed, lies, death ... alternatively a different story unfolds every time and takes us closer to the present. Thus, there are two parallel stories unravelling, each in a different age and place, which surprisingly converge in a revelatory chapter.

If you feel like reading an unputdownable novel while collaborating with a just and solidary cause, this is your book! (Only available in Spanish, being translated to English at the moment)
