Author Appearance: Kingsway High School

I know I say it in the post itself, but this honestly was one of the most rewarding and terrifying moments of my life! The librarian at Kingsway High School reached out to me after having read my debut novel ‘The Ridge‘, letting me know if I were ever back in Amanzimtoti, she’d love to…

The Rough Draft: July 2020

For anyone who caught my post towards the end of July, either here on on facebook, you may already know that I found June a bit of a struggle. I’m generally quite a positive person, who tends not to worry about things unless they’re actually happening — mostly because I feel it’s a waste of…

FREE for a limited time: Inyoni Rocks

Grab the second instalment to the Amanzimtoti Series, FREE, for the next few days only! June has been a bit of a rollercoaster of a month for me so far, and with enough ups and downs I honestly don’t know what day of the week it is anymore. So much so, I’d actually forgotten I was…

The Rough Draft: April 2020

Dusting this old thing off to once again bring you The Rough Draft, whereby I keep you updated on where I am in regards to my reading, writing, and other authorly goals. Unless, by some miracle, I actually start doing more ‘authorly’ things over the course of the month, I’ll be posting this review on the…

There was just something about the escapism I couldn’t resist; visiting new places, meeting new people, meeting people who were like me and were experiencing the same problems I was, meeting people…

Introducing… “Tommy”, the contemporary romance I’ll be writing in May!

Last year I decided to use the month of May to make some serious headway in regards to the writing of my second novel. I had twenty-five completely uninterrupted days in Cairns, Australia, and knew I needed to make a start on the book before I commenced a roadtrip that would see me touring the…

The Rough Draft: April Round Up

Well I’m kind of glad April’s over and done with! This month saw the second novel in my Amanzimtoti series, Inyoni Rocks, launch which was equal parts nerve-wracking and that overwhelming feeling of relief all rolled into one. It’s almost funny how the pre-release caused me so much inner-drama, but as soon as it launched (and thankfully…
