Monday Morning Emails Out Now!

Summertime Publishing are delighted to announce the publication of Monday Morning Emails by Terry Anne Wilson and Jo Parfitt.

Six months, twelve countries, a thousand thoughts – two mothers share the journey of living a global life.

A continent apart, Jo and Terry Anne made the commitment to email each other every Monday morning for six months. Part memoir, part diary, part self-help, the result is a vulnerable and insightful recollection – the then and now – of expatriate life between two friends. Over the past twenty-five years, the authors have created homes for their families in 12 countries from Japan to Kazakhstan, Malaysia to the Netherlands, the US to India and Oman. Combined, they have raised five sons, supported their husbands’ careers, and cultivated their own passions in writing, publishing, mentoring and more.

Uplifting yet painfully honest, Monday Morning Emails delves into a myriad of tough subjects including identity, parenting, Third Culture Kids, faith, rootlessness, traumatic childhood experiences, anxiety and depression. Jo and Terry Anne emerge from this candidly emotional exchange drawing joy and growth from facing life’s challenges before an ever-changing backdrop. And together they affirm that mothers are mothers, wherever home may be. With input and advice from experts, this book will enlighten, guide, and offer solace.

I have run my own business since I was 25, largely because I am a serial entrepreneur and cannot survive without the variety provided by being self-employed. After 10 years living and working abroad, we returned to England in 1997 and Summertime Publishing was born. In 2005 we moved to The Hague, then to Malaysia in 2014. I have developed a business based on writing, publishing, mentoring and teaching what I know. I know how to write, how to publish, how to run a business despite international moves, how to network and how to live abroad. I find countless opportunities to change lives through my writing, teaching, speaking and mentoring and love nothing more than to 'share what I know to help others to grow'.
