Welcome to my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable World!
Here you will find a delicious slice of award-winning, historical fiction, set in South Africa in the 20th century.
Please, stay a while, watch a book trailer, read a chapter, check out the stories behind the stories, and meander through my musings.
I hope you’ll find we’re kindred spirits, you and me.
UNTAMED – like a wild animal or two, UNEXPECTED – like “Ooooh…didn’t see that coming!” and UNFORGETTABLE – because we’re impressed by insightful, interesting, poignant, unusual, funny and fabulous things!
I look so forward to us getting to know each other.
