Chanda's Secrets is a suspense-filled novel about a teenager who fights to rescue the people she loves.

Above all, this is a story about living with truth.
Chanda's Wars is the unforgettable story of a teenager who risks her life to save her brother and sister. Epic in its sweep, intimate in its humanity, it is a gripping tale of family intrigue, love and courage, forgiveness and hope.
Life, Above All is a emotional and universal drama about a young girl (stunningly performed by first-time-actress Khomotso Manyaka) who fights the fear and shame that have poisoned her community.
