" Tani has a pure and original voice of absolute integrity and she offers us a practical and inspirational wisdom of healing where the feminine comes into its true power.
In the present time there is a lot of talk in the Western worls about the need for both women and men to come into the feminine side of their natures, yet not a lot of awareness about what the feminine actually is. We of the post war generations were not able to discover this nor provide positive role modelling because of our own conditioning. We were only able to open our arms to the crying need for more caring.
Tani's voice is absolutely contemporary yet harkens back to the very deep roots with a resonance we all have in our own hearts. Her writing honours the feeling nature, the voice and understanding of the child within us all and the power of our own inner knowing. The way she writes directly out of her own wise inner child and out of her own womb is an enactment of the feminine which is both practical and inspiring. She always returns, throughout her work, to this vision of the child, stripped of all pretences, simple,clear and true. She teaches us that we all have this knowledge and this power and that right living and right relationship depends on each of us being true to our own vision, to caring for our own needs and to finding our own contact, at the centre of ourselves, with the earth.
Her writing opens a way for both men and women, through the power of the feminine, to accept themselves and to accept each other.'"

"I have walked with Tani many times, I have talked with her many times, we have woven and we have shared many stories ,many times.
It is such stories, the story of Tani ,footstep by thoughtprint, breath by breath, feeling the world, knowing the world, that live within, that are sung through her writing.
I know of few other writers, of few other people whose integrity of being, whose deep trust, acceptance and life's honour are so simply and beautifully illuminated in a poetry that shines with truth and light on all those who read it..'

...'anyone who meets Tani will see that she is a vibrant, open, candid and honest soul. Her love for nature and adventures of the heart are integral to her wellbeing.
Anyone who reads Tani's stories will be struck by her unique and self actualising voice. It is likely they will also be moved to tears by her stories 'urgings for a human life which is real, raw and true to one's self. Tani's works provide alchemy on the lives of those who read them....'
