Janine Shepherd’s story reads like the plot of a Hollywood movie. A champion cross-country skier in training for the Winter Olympics, her life was irrevocably altered when she was hit by a truck on a bike ride. Doctors warned her parents that she was not expected to survive her extensive injuries and even if she recovered, she would never walk again. Janine’s hopes of being an elite sportsperson were gone. But Janine refused to believe what medical staff were telling her and instead she focused every sinew of her being on healing her broken body and crushed morale. After spinal surgery and months in the hospital, she returned home in a wheelchair.

Struggling to come to terms with her shattered Olympic dreams, and wondering what life could now offer, Janine’s fighting spirit was rekindled watching small planes flying overhead.

Janine’s miraculous recovery and subsequent achievements are a testament to the power of the human spirit. and one that will move and inspire all who hear it.

Janine Shepherds story reads like the plot of a Hollywood movie. A champion cross country skier in training for the Winter Olympics, her life was irrevocably altered during a bike ride to the Blue Mountains when she was hit by a truck. Her neck and back were broken in four places, as were her right arm, collarbone and five ribs. Her right leg had been ripped open, she had sustained massive internal injuries, severe lacerations to her abdominal area, and had lost five litres of blood. The bleeding alone was enough to kill her. Doctors warned her parents that she was not expected to survive her ordeal. Even if by some small chance she recovered, she would never walk again. Coming to terms with her shattered Olympic dreams, refusing to believe what expert medical staff were telling her about her chances of any kind of recovery, Janine focused every sinew of her being on healing her broken body and crushed morale. Her fighting spirit was rekindled watching small planes flying overhead. She said to herself, If I cant walk, Ill fly. And fly she did. Within a year she had her private pilots licence; twelve months later, her commercial licence; soon after, her instructors permit and aerobatic endorsement. And all the while she pushed her body to mend itself, forced her legs to walk again, step by painful step. NEVER TELL ME NEVER is her story, a testament to the power of the human spirit, and one that will move and inspire all who read it.

On a warm Autumn day in 1986, Janine Shepherds life was changed forever. Her dreams of representing Australia in the Winter Olympics were shattered when she was hit by a truck during a cycling training session in the Blue Mountains. Her neck and back were broken in four places, as were her right arm, collarbone and five ribs. Her right leg had been ripped open, she had sustained massive internal injuries, severe lacerations to her abdominal area, and had lost five litres of blood. The bleeding alone was enough to kill her. Doctors warned her parents that she was not expected to survive her ordeal; if by some miracle she did, she would certainly never walk again. But never was a word Janine Shepherd refused to hear, let alone believe, and her remarkable recovery, recounted in her bestselling book NEVER TELL ME NEVER, was a testament to Janines indomitable spirit and extraordinary courage. Now Janines story continues in Dare to Fly, a heartwarming and inspirational account of her journey of recovery - not only physical, but also emotional and spiritual - and of the people she has met along the way who were inspired by Janine and who, in turn, continue to encourage and inspire her. As she writes in DARE TO FLY, We all need to know that no matter what happens to us in this life, we are never alone. Janine Shepherds story will truly move us all to dare to fly.

In 1986, champion cross-country skier Janine Shepherd was training for the Winter Olympics when she was hit by a truck and suffered life-threatening injuries. Janine was told that she would never walk again. That story was recounted in her bestselling memoir NEVER TELL ME NEVER, which was subsequently made into a telemovie starring Claudia Karvan. Not only did Janine confound her doctors by learning to walk again, she learned to fly a plane and became a commercial pilot and aerobatics instructor. She married and had three children, despite the medical belief this would be impossible. That moving and inspirational story is the subject of DARE TO FLY, which also describes the incredible response to her first book and the way the Australian public opened their hearts to Janine. The next chapter in her life appeared to be stable and idyllic: buying a farm and moving to the Southern Highlands with her husband and three kids, running the farm, continuing with her aerobatic and flying training, learning to ride a horse. Janine being Janine, she not only learned to ride, but learned dressage, and learned it so well she was in the running for seleciton in the Paralympic Equestrian Team for the Athens Olympics. Then the unthinkable happened. Her husband, Tim, became seriously ill and suddenly, her long-held dream of country life began to crumble. ON MY OWN TWO FEET is the honest and often heart-wrenching account of Janine's struggle to save her family from an unpredictable and devastating illness that threatened to tear them apart. Anyone who has gained strength and inspiration from Janine's previous books will be saddened, touched but ultimately uplifted by this incredible story, told with her characteristic warmth, integrity and humour.

PricewaterhouseCoopers

"Janine had the whole room enthralled - her story is undeniably epic, and her delivery is animated and engaging. She clearly had a message to give which was relevant to all of us in both our personal and working lives: Go ahead and do what you want to do - never let anyone tell you never, never let the odds dissuade you from trying, and learn to love the challenge. There were tears and laughter, and we loved every minute. I will definitely be reading her books!"
