Biography

Hello from Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa!

At present I manage a guest house and write in my spare time. Rather a busy life and every day is different. I take care of my elderly mum who is rather sickly. We have a tiny little dog named Chloe, and I have a cat who seems to have adopted me. Not to mention her five kittens who seem to think they own the show.

I have quite a range of books on offer and I am sure you are going to enjoy each and every one of them. In a nutshell, you will find a mix of romance, adventure, lots of witty banter and a happy ever after. All round a feel good read.

Thank you for reading and for your support.
