About the Book

RUNNING tells the story of a single mum, a solo parent who with two children in tow left the shores of Fiji bound to Sydney Australia in the hope of a better life. Her journey takes you through her challenges from when she was a child into her adult life. She shares the consequences of the choices she has made in life. Consequences that she had to make right.

Pregnant at 21 with her first child and alone in New Zealand, she took on the task of raising this child with the help of family in Sydney Australia. Because of her family’s Christian values, abortion was out of the question. Adoption was the only option. An option that she chose not to go along with but rather keep and raise the child herself.

Now a solo mum she moved back to Fiji and met a man who would soon become the father to her second child and guardian to her first. The relationship ended after 11 years.

Determined to give her children the best life that they deserved, she chose to go back to school. Four years later she graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in Liberal Studies degree from the University of Sydney.

Today, this woman and her children now walk in the blessing because of her choices. Walking with Jesus is a choice and the blessings that come with that decision will be revealed in her next book titled, WALKING.

This is her story.


About the Author

Ema Volavola resides in Sydney, Australia, and is a single mother to her sons Ben and Milan. She has been a solo parent for a little over 20 years. She is the youngest of two girls, the half-sister to five boys and one girl, and a stepsister to two boys and one girl. Ema was born in Fiji, raised in England, educated in Fiji, New Zealand and Australia. A former marketing and advertising executive, Ema moved to Sydney with her two sons to pursue a Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies) degree at the University of Sydney. She graduated from the program in 2004. Ema has always enjoyed writing, and the venture of writing this book is a dream come true. A book that’s been a long time coming. Ema conceived this idea many years ago, yet the busyness of life took over. This book is a labour of love. It was birthed out of years of questioning her purpose on planet earth. She would ask herself how she could be an encouragement to other solo parents — women or men struggling in their journey. After years of pondering, questioning herself and many conversations with God, Ema took the leap of faith and decided to write the book.
