A desire to create beautiful characters and stories that help kids manage tough emotions and feel brave led her to develop www.feelbrave.com

This project also has a charitable arm at www.friendsoffeelbrave.com which has the vision ‘To give all children access to tools to help them manage tough emotions and reach their true potential’.

Avril signed her first deal with Crown House Publishing and released five children’s book plus a Teaching Guide in June 2016.
