Sending you warmest good wishes for Christmas this year.

I’m holding my breath, hoping 2022 will be the end of the virus madness. Early indications are that Omicron is very contagious but has symptoms like the average cold. A scientist told me, as viruses mutate, they become more contagious but have weaker symptoms. I’m holding onto hope!

You may enjoy a distraction […]

Crow About to Fly

Getting close to 70,000 words with about five chapters to complete for my new book Crow’s Song. It may be a longer read too.

It’s been hard work researching some of the details of the main protagonists, Ava in London, and Piet in Eindhoven, during WWII. I’ve been daring and written the characters in first person during their […]

Third Daughter

I am supporting an Afghani mother and five children trapped in Kabul.

As a contemporary and biographical author, I undertake many hours of research. I see the similarities throughout history of the plight of refugees. This crisis is no different to the mass exodus of people trying to escape the Nazis during WWII.

The Taliban have plunged Afghanistan and it’s people back […]

What’s in a Name?

It must be a fool moon! I’m not kidding. It’s taken me eight-months to get halfway through my current book project, Crow’s Song.

Then I decided to start writing another secret-squirrel book at the same time. Working on two books every day!! There must be medication for this, right? To hell with housework, ironing, and dust bunnies! […]

To Vaccinate… Or Not?

To Vaccinate… Or Not?

Only 20 percent of New Zealanders are fully vaccinated. We’re down there with third world countries at the bottom of vaccination rates. Why?

Because we followed a Covid elimination strategy. It worked until NOW. Delta is ramping up and with 107+ cases and a further 14,000 close contacts in the past week!

Let’s look at the average Kiwi’s vaccination […]
