I live in Cape Town, that’s the tippy bottom of Africa, in case you didn’t know. I am the wife of an aging surfer, mother of his children and slave of a presumptuous cat. I worked full time for many years as a beauty therapist, but now I split my time between my salon and writing. My novel, Shadow Flicker, won the inaugural Romance Writers of South Africa’s Strelitzia Award in 2017 and will be released in September 2018. My novel, A Fractured Land, was published in the United States in April 2018. Since moving to Cape Town I have learned to surf a Stand Up Paddle board, and was beyond stoked to win the South African Sup Surfing Champs in my age group (Divas) last year. So besides writing environmental love stories, I share the stoke as a freelance surf writer.
