MHM @ Wanneroo Library

October 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rebecca Laffar-Smith lives with her young adult children and their service animal pup. She also lives with chronic pain and mental illness. Those lived experiences drive her to write young adult sci-fi and fantasy novels that star diverse characters. As a presenter and coach, Rebecca loves to write and speak about the challenges of living with disability. She also loves to chat about all things writing related! Her books and talks inspire people to experience possibility and discover wonder.

Book – Spirit Talker
On the surface, Rebecca Laffar-Smith’s new book, Spirit Talker, is about a girl who sees ghosts. Beneath you find a sympathetic look at real life mental illness. About the dangers of not having your voice heard. And the importance of self-advocating, with medical and mental health professionals, or with loved ones. Inspired by her own lived experience, Spirit Talker was written to inspire, give hope, and save the lives of teens facing challenges today.
