The topics covered range from, homelessness, heartbreak, depression, loss of her business, suicidal thoughts and PTSD, after an encounter with a dangerous individual. Her second book which was published in March 2019 'A Parent's Worst Nightmares' builds on this foundation. It explores what a parent can do when their teenager is set on self-destruction. She has just published her third book 'Mind Over Quarantine' - March 2020, in light of the recent Coronavirus pandemic. It helps the average person to cope with an extended stay in quarantine. Anita was an entrepreneur before deciding on a career change.

Anita tackles the most difficult of subjects, with at times, brutal honesty and self-discovery. She writes with a passion for her subject matter and does her best to engage with readers straight from the heart. She isn't psychiatrically trained, preferring to use instead, her own harrowing experiences. This is combined with her unique insights that will if nothing else, make the reader believe by the end, that they are no longer alone on their own journey through whatever adversity, has befallen them.
