Welcome to my writing world!

I hope you find my books of interest and value to your reading pile.

My debut, A Darker Shade of Pale: a memoir of apartheid South Africa is still listed in the top 30 books in several categories on Amazon Australia. My second book Behind my Smile: a True Story of an Author, a Broken Spirit and a Healer was released on 21 March. It is currently out in online stores and I’m looking forward to getting out to talking about this story at libraries and other events.

My documentary, Healing from the Shadows is currently in production and scheduled for completion in mid 2021.

Be sure to check out my pages for media and readers’ reviews.

My new books are in development. I have several other writing projects in my files and look forward to bring these manuscripts to print.

Exceptionally well-written and the prose is delightful. I could not put this book down.
