MAXMOM here...

"Wherever MAXDOG goes, let it do good!"

Hi there everyone,

I finally managed to upload the 7 minute video clip of my recent television interview.

The interview about my book MAXDOG was conducted by Sindy Mabe - one of the presenters on  the "Sunrise"of ETV on the 13th December 2011. 
This footage is courtesy of ETV.

If you would like a copy of the book, please email me at
If you would like the eBook in PDF version, please email me too.

Wishing all my readers a happy Christmas!

Watched the interview. It was wonderful. You were so composed. No er's or uh's or weird gestures. I would have been a babbling idiot. Or made stern face.

Amazing interview. On a superficial note, it was so lovely to hear the SA accent again (we used to live in London!) beautiful!

Your responses, even more beautiful. Congratulations on tapping into that powerful strength you have to share your story.

Look forward to visiting the blog again soon

What a wonderful gift you have given - letting us hear you speak about yourself and Max! I am so proud of you. You have beautiful way of expressing yourself, you didn't appear nervous either! God Bless you.

Hi Maxmom, that was a very good interview. We think that you did a great job highlighting the main issue of mental illness (acknowledging that there was a problem), then seeking help and finally treatment. And how writing and of course Max, helped in your recovery and spiritual maintenance. We all have had or perhaps currently have significant life issues that can bring us to our knees. You've shown how those issues can be dealt with in a positive way. We're currently into Chapter 2 of your book and it's well written and interesting. My dad says that he can "picture it all in his mind". And that's really good. So to everyone who's thinking about whether to order the eBook (PDF) version readable on your PC or tablet or e-reader through Caryl, please do it. The book is nominally priced and you'll get far more out of it than the small sum that you'll spend to acquire it. Go on, all the "cool kids" are ordering it.

HI Maxmom,

How exciting for you and what a lovely interview. I'm sorry I've not been around to visit for quite a few months but now with winter here in Chicagoland I hope to get back to my excuses just lazy I guess. Kasha is still doing well and will be 10 years old in January. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Hi Caryl, you were wonderful. If you were nervous (which I don't know if you were) it certainly didn't show. I can't wait to read your book. Take care and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

You did so well in your interview - it was wonderful to see it and hear you talk about your book. I also liked your movie of Max.

Sending you lots of love and best wishes for Christmas with your family.
