Cover Reveal … Finding Mia

I clearly remember meeting my Hayley for the first time. Labor took 4,5 hours (short compared to most), a few pushes and some tugging. Then they handed me this squishy bundle of wrinkled skin – pale, blueish and not too charmed at facing the big world. I was smitten. To me, there’d never been anythingContinue reading “Cover Reveal … Finding Mia”

Pop the waterbed! Do it!

  This post is really about passion. In fact, it’s not even my post, but it was so profound I got goosebumps. Serious goosebumps. So if you have every wondered what God wants you to do with you life, this post is for you. Head on over here and check it out. Let me knowContinue reading “Pop the waterbed! Do it!”

Landsick…

    Have you ever been on a boat long enough to get your sea-legs, only to feel thoroughly sick when you get back on land? This is probably the best way I can describe how I’m feeling at the moment – though it has nothing to do with boats, land or throwing up. Shhh! Let me explain.Continue reading “Landsick…”

Walking on aeroplane wings and other preposterous ideas

So I’m in an aeroplane. We are thousands of feet above mother earth. I look out the window and read this little gem printed on the wing… ‘Do not walk outside this area’ Oh really? Why ever not? I’m so glad they put that out there, because you know – I was just about to head outContinue reading “Walking on aeroplane wings and other preposterous ideas”

Things aren’t what they seem…

If you had peeped into my bedroom this morning at 8, you would have thought – look at that lazy thing, tucked up under the duvet doing nothing. You would have, in fact, been dead wrong. Oh yes – to a casual observer it would seem that I was lying very snug and still, but what youContinue reading “Things aren’t what they seem…”

Your winter is over

Today’s post is a little unusual, so bear with me. If you get to a point that you feel it’s not for you, you are most welcome to go make some tea and carry on with your life, or move on to the next blog. I won’t be offended in the slightest. Promise. In the December holidays,Continue reading “Your winter is over”

Your Gifting will make Room for You

I caught the tail-end of a story on the news yesterday. There was a man, a brilliant maths teacher, forced to flee his country because of political unrest. He settled in Jo’burg and tried to find work in his area of expertise. Nobody would hire him as a teacher, but he managed to get a job asContinue reading “Your Gifting will make Room for You”

Holes in my head… *insert happy face here*

  I finally know that it is true. There are holes in my head, the size of swiss cheese. But it’s okay. You see this morning I started novel #2. Where is novel #1 you might ask? On the shelf. For now. I had always harboured a secret hope that I wouldn’t be amongst allContinue reading “Holes in my head… *insert happy face here*”

Fruitful waiting

All writers know what it means to wait. And wait. And wait some more… Waiting to hear from agents, publishers… All the while trying not to hope too much that this could be the one, this could be the Big Break. Only to have it all come crashing down in a two line form email.Continue reading “Fruitful waiting”
