Awe-inspiring video on "The Making of" Dark & Light!

I am so thrilled to finally be able to unveil this video to you!

For the last few months, friends of mine (these guys gave me my first journalism job!) at Northwest Media Services created this "pitch" video in an effort to get our story about Dark & Light into a national spotlight. It's interesting just for that reason, but there's a lot of other great reasons to watch it. If you're curious about why Malachi has cerebral palsy or what led us to choose the Anat Baniel Method as our primary form of treatment, this has those answers.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

If this video resonates with you in any way, I invite you to share it through social media. And if you happen to know anybody (or anybody who knows anybody...) in national media please pass this along to them.

Want to pick up your very own copy of Dark & Light: A Love Story in Black and White? Of course you do! It makes a great gift for the loved ones in your life and a fabulous addition to schools, libraries, special needs programs, doctor's offices, etc., etc. Click here to visit our book store! All profits go directly to Malachi's medical fund (which in truth is running on fumes about now...!).

Thanks for your support!


  1. Beautiful video. Best wishes with the book.

  2. Hi Shasta, my name is Fernanda and I am also mom of twins (boy and a girl). Your story ressonates with me in so many ways...We are also on a similar journey, with both twins developing at a different pace (my boy was severe IUGR and developmentally is facing issues, motor and sensory)and, wow...sometimes it sucks.But then he smiles and everything is great again ;-). I live in Norway, Scandinavia, and wonder if I can buy your book from here as well? A big hug from Oslo, Fernanda (

    1. Hi there! Yes, certainly! I'll write to you directly.

  3. Nice video Shasta! FYI - The Brain that Changes Itself was the first book I read too! I read it within the first two weeks of my boys' lives just grasping for something positive to tell me it was all going to be ok. And you're SO right that many therapists still CP as rooted in the muscles - frustrating. All the best to you for a wider spread audience!
