FORMER Sawtell resident Kate Filmer and co-author Shannon Thomson will launch their self-published book and journal, Hidden Path, at JJ’s Lagoon Cafe at 4pm today.

Kate said Hidden Path was actually a life-changing 12-month program which had grown out of her experiences and those of her co-author and neighbour.

“I do believe we have a wonderful story,” Kate said.

“It starts with two young families struggling to pay the bills and both of us were at a rock-bottom low emotionally, when we each personally decided to change our lives from the inside out.

“Our lives began to flourish and even though we are still dealing with the same pressures as all other middle-income families, we have worked around our children and these pressures to live out our dreams and design something unique, inspiring and above all else, life changing.”

“We designed our Hidden Path so it would be cheap enough for even the tightest family or personal budget, as we know how this one goes.

“But the program is so informative and simple to use, that within the first weeks our readers are reporting life change and our forums are filling with stories.”

Kate said she had spent the best part of her childhood and adult years growing up in Boambee and Sawtell, before heading north where she married, had children and moved in next door to co-author Shannon.

She is delighted to be back here for today’s local launch of Hidden Path from 4pm to 6pm at JJ’s Lagoon Café at Cockbains Sawtell Nursery, owned by Kate’s father Gary Cockbain. All are welcome.

Hidden Path is also available from Dymocks at Park Beach Plaza.
