In this episode of Conversations with Vegan Women Leaders, we interview Ondine Sherman, the co-founder and managing director of Voiceless: The animal Protection Institute in Australia.
She’s the author of several books including the Animal Allies fictional series for young readers, and The Miracle of Love: A Mother’s Story of Grief, Hope and Acceptance, her memoir about her spiritual journey as she deals with her twin sons’ medical condition, which ultimately leads to acceptance, love, meaning and a new understanding of ‘miracles’.
Ondine’s latest non-fiction book is Vegan Living, a comprehensive and accessible ‘how to’ guide covering all aspects of veganism.
In this conversation, Ondine talks about:
• The influences her parents – father Brian, a mega successful businessman, and Gene, her creative, artistic mother – had on her growing up
• How she reacted when she first learned of her twin sons’ rare genetic condition that meant they may not ever be able to walk or talk properly
• What she went through in the ensuing years, searching for a cure
• How writing helped her through a spiritual journey to love and acceptance
• How she learned to ignore other people’s real or imagined opinions about her and her life
• How she’s handling her father living with Parkinson’s
• And more
