“Brothers Never Die” celebrates the strength of children and shares a story of a brother grieving his brother’s death. Welhaven wants “Brothers Never Die” to be a beacon of hope for children grappling with complex emotions, and she hopes that her new book reaches hearts around the world. In fact, she wrote her story in English so that it would be accessible by people everywhere.

When it came to writing “Brothers Never Die,” Welhaven wanted to address the unique bond between siblings even in dire times. “The most challenging aspect of writing this book was navigating the delicate emotions surrounding siblings and families facing unique challenges,” said Welhaven. “Writing ‘Brothers Never Die’ was a cathartic journey, a way to transform our challenges into a source of inspiration. It’s a testament to the extraordinary bond of siblings facing adversity, a reminder that even in the darkest moments, there is a glimmer of hope.”
