Let's Talk

I am always here for anyone who needs to talk.
End the stigma. Don't be ashamed.

Val Rankin Prinsloo

 lives and works in the insurance sector in bustling Johannesburg, South Africa. She is a mother to Cidal. Life is jam-packed with day-to-day activities but writing gives her the greatest pleasure and fulfillment and that is how she spends any free time.


She was born and raised in the so-called City on a hill, Eshowe (KwaZulu-Natal) in 1972. Those days were a far cry from city life; quite rural, where everyone knew your name and stopped to offer you a lift in the rain.

Valley of Victory is her first book.


Her journey through life has been a challenging yet exciting transformation.



Mental Wellness is a topic that she is passionate   about. 



If you read my story you will feel more comfortable with the issues relating to mental and behavioural challenges.  If we work together professionally I will be able to connect with your company in order to bridge the waters of misunderstanding around psycho-social disabilities in the work-place.
