I’m currently living Cape Town, South Africa experiencing my Nomad Writing Adventure.
If there’s WIFI, I can go there on my Nomad Writing Adventure and enjoy almost uninterrupted writing of my next new book.
Being here has been an interesting and confronting experience in equal measure. There’s still a special X-Factor energy here, a hum and beat that uplifts your […]
My new psychological thriller, The Foster Mother, was published two weeks ago.
The good news is that The Foster Mother has reviews in the USA with a rating of 4.5 stars.
Because the story is set in NZ & Australia, across three of their main cities, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, I ideally need to attract more readers in both […]
I wrote, Confessions of Love, while overseas at the end of last year.
My husband said I should call it, “What Your Lovers Told Me,” and in hindsight, I think his advice was more catchy and true to the content.

I’m about a third into it and there’s much more meaty stuff to write.
The basic story outline, […]
I’m stepping away from Social Media.
Moving away from social media is big move after years of involvement. I’ve been mulling over this shift for some months and now seems like the best time. A clean start in 2023!
I don’t know about you, but nearly everyone I speak to both here and overseas, has the same sense of the world spiralling our […]
Award Winning Fiction?
I’m about to head off overseas in 11 days and have been decluttering my email inbox!
The last thing I expected was Duplicity being named as Award Winning Fiction runner up in the USA.
