I received a barrage of enquiries from both individuals and media who wanted to know: what was the outcome of Fiona’s pregnancy? How have the remaining embryos been allocated? How has our Village evolved?
It became apparent shortly after the ‘Australian Story’ airing, that there was demand for a book detailing my full story, and the evolving story of the recipients that received Lexie's biological sibling embryos. 18 months later, I'm proud to launch this unique and moving memoir ‘Lexie’s Village – A New Kind of Family’.
As part of the launch of the first book, I decided to establish Lexie's Village Publishing, which is devoted to producing literature that fosters awareness, education and support for people undertaking donor-assisted reproduction and all the kinds of families that form as a result.

“A courageous personal account of the toll of IVF treatment, and the surprises, challenges and rewards of embryo donation.” Distinguished Professor of Health Law, Jenni Millbank, UTS
