Poetry Book

Waves is a poetry collection summarizing my experience in the last 10 years with mental illness. It allows readers into my personal struggles, triumphs and all of the spaces between. While writing Waves, I highlighted the inner strength we all have while still acknowledging how hard it can be to access that strength at times. Waves will in-still a sense of support for readers and, hopefully, leave them feeling grounded.” Tara Melindy

nowthatimhere_coverNow That I’m Here is a children’s book that was written as a tribute to a very special little girl, Kate Drury, who passed away on November 30, 2015 at age eight. She died of a very rare form of mitochondrial disease called sideroblastic anemia, immune deficiency, fever and developmental delay (SIFD). Now That I’m Here is a personal story about young Kate; it also touches on universal themes, offering a way for families to teach their children about death, illness and disability. Our hope is that this special book can continue Kate’s legacy, spread awareness into mitochondrial disease and lead to better treatment. To purchase your English or French copy of this very touching story, please visit:

All profits will go to the CHEO Research Institute towards research into SIFD.
