They say everything happens for a reason. You may not always know the reason immediately, but often things work out for the best. My early departure from Malaysia was a blessing in disguise. If I only left when planned, I would have been stuck in quarantine in a foreign country all on my own. Yes, my husband is in lockdown in Egypt and my daughter in lockdown in Australia. Now I am with my sisters and brother and I don't have to go through all this uncertainty with COVID19, all on my own.

I hope you are all doing well and manage to stay safe. 

What's happening in 2020?

I've finished the first draft of the translation/re-write of Eye on the Ball into Afrikaans. It's current working title is Jakes se Geheim and it will be book 1 in the Pad na Glorie-reeks.


I did it! I changed the covers of the Blue Mountain series. The cover here will be the cover for the first box set, which should be published at the end of April. I've now uploaded the first three books, Summertime Blue, My Blue Heaven and Kind of Blue on Amazon and also released them in KU. 

Below are the new covers for these books and, as a sneak preview, the covers for the next three books in the series. I'm not sure which one of Out of the Blue or A Spark of Blue I will publish first, or when, but I will let you know.

A to Z Blogging Challenge 2020

Call me crazy, but I've decided to enroll in the A-Z Blogging Challenge 2020 not only for a new blog on my website, but also for a new blog about my travels called Ramblings of the Travelling Mug

For those of you who don’t know about this Blogging challenge, let me explain: all participants have to write a blog post every day throughout April (except Sundays) with a theme that starts with the corresponding letter of the alphabet.

You can find out more about the A-Z Blogging Challenge here.

Again, thank you for your support. Hope to see you in April. Until next time.
