Cape Town-based medical doctor and author Dr Dawn Garisch describes the metaphors at the heart of her latest written offering.

Dr Dawn Garisch has written her seventh novel, Breaking Milk, published by Karavan Press.

Her book explores family estrangement and the divisions and connections between humans.

The book is about separations and connections in many different areas.

RELATED: The warning signs of parental alienation

Garisch is a practising medical doctor and says writing has been a journey of healing and self-discovery.

She's a founding member of the Life Righting Collective where she runs courses in memoir writing to help others heal.

She encourages people to find a creative outlet they love and commit to it every day to improve their mental health.

I see writing as primary healthcare.
