Martie du Plooy

Martie is as colourful as her book “Magic happens when you move”, which brings two of her greatest passions together: people and the field of creativity. She is an accredited life coach, a psychometrist, a writer and an artist.


A book that allows the uniqueness of the different characters to shine through their stories, as we hear and see their voices and get to know them in their own unique worlds- permitting us to connect with them in a deeply human way.

Stories that provide insights into the way in which amputees look at their world, thereby lighting the way through the darkness for others.

Prof. Juan Bornman


This book with the beautiful title speaks to us in so many ways – yes, the focus is on the amputee; but it is a universal message important to all of us.

Over the past few decades, I have written and studied many books on creativity and the contributions creative people have made to make our world a better world. Matie du Plooy’s “Magic happens when you move” is one of those unique gems that truly makes a historic contribution and fills a gap that should have been filled a long time ago.
