The Bestselling Moa Series celebrates International Women's Day and takes a cue from the brilliant "Fearless Girl" statue on Wall Street with strong female characters and an even more unique plot twist, a mother-daughter collaboration.
The Moa Series has garnered 34 book awards and inspired a companion album of recorded rituals which have received over 1.5 Million streams and downloads. Listen to them here
Shiu's daughter not only illustrated all three books, but also took the cover photos which adorn each cover. Sydney Shiu, won a Mom's Choice Silver Award for "Young Contributor Illustrator." From now until May 31, 2017, 10% of each book will be donated to GirlsPACT a nonprofit dedicated to empowering and inspiring girls and young women to make sound, educated decisions with confidence and poise.
In addition to being an award-winning author, Ms. Shiu is also an intuitive healer who actually had an encounter with Moa, the ancient Hawaiian spirit at the heart of the series. "When I was five," Ms. Shiu explained, "I was visited by a vision. I'll never forget it, I was running down the stairs and the entity, a girl with dark hair, stopped me in my tracks." Ms. Shiu's experience with this benevolent spirit launched her into a personal journey of spiritual exploration which brought a deeper meaning to the entire Moa Series.
The author sums it all up this way; "Whatever your belief or understanding of the metaphysical world, I believe that if one person is transformed through learning, then we are all transformed. I truly believe the Moa I met came through in this work and, just as I connected with her as I wrote, those who read the book will experience her as well."
