What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Describe your desk
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a dairy farm in the Free State Province of South Africa.
I think the laid back farm life definitely contributed to why I am always on Planet Su-Ny' and very absent on Planet Earth.
When did you first start writing?
About a year ago.
What's the story behind your latest book?
God placed a desire to write this book on my heart and He led me through it. I come from a family that has had past struggles with obesity and I was not left unscathed. I too suffered from weight issues, scale issues, self-esteem issues. Basically more issues than Time Magazine. That is until God brought me to deliverance and revealed how He saw me - as the perfect version of me.

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on 3 books simultaneously! In New Beginnings I'm writing about our journey through infertility and misacarriages & the healing and revelations God brought us, hoping to do the same to others going through this. I'm also working on a book for ladies where I address everyday issues that we face - the scale, our body image, being a mom, being a woman, money concerns, etc and how to see them from a Kingdom perspective. Lastly, and my favorite at the moment, I'm writing about how to love people like Jesus, especially when loving them isn't easy.
Who are your favorite authors?
Joel Osteen & Dr. Myles Munroe to name a few.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
