Today, I'd like to give you a look behind the scenes of a book I'm writing. It's called Dreamstate, and it's an Urban Fantasy novel, set in the Olympic Peninsula of the United States. Because of its storyline, and setting, I have a vast variety of characters. They range from normal civilians, to scientists and doctors, to sergeant majors and generals, and, of course, dreamers. Other characters that play a major part in this novel are monsters. Besides naming my characters, I
My resilience has paid off, and you're about to get a new book. Johannesburg, South Africa, 2020. It's just another day in Erika's life when she reads the red banner of breaking news on the BBC News Channel.

I knew from the get-go that 2019 would be an exciting year, and so far it has not disappointed.
We moved house and with it came the opportunity to design a new office space for my writing. Well, right now, the space is full of boxes and no writing has taken place in it, yet. But, soon, my desk will find its place and my reference books will go on their shelves and I will be back to writing the stories I hope you all love to read.
The re-release of the Elemental Trilogy wen
Finally! They are ready. I have been dying to share my new covers with you, but that is not all I have been working on. There are a lot of changes coming in 2019 and I hope you are going to be as excited as I am.
To start, we have completely redesigned the covers of The Elemental Trilogy. The covers are live on Amazon as of today.
During the course of 2019, you will see some more remakes, as well as well as some amazing new stuff. Most of the books due for release already h

August and September this year were the most hectic months of this year and I am sorry you did not get to hear from me as often. However, I did finish Forbidden Elemental and I successfully survived Comic-Con Africa 2018. I took a brief hiatus afterwards and, for a short while, the question of "what's next" hovered menacingly over my head. Once I got over the "I finished my trilogy" feeling, I realised there is nothing to worry about, as I still have three more Elemental Shor
As most of you will know, my writing had to take a bit of a back seat due to some turbulence in my private life. I have recently had an operation, but am healing nicely. My mother-in-law is out of hospital and recovering well. Unfortunately, my father-in-law passed away after being in ICU for nine weeks. All in all, it has been a very trying time and our family is slowly learning to live with the new situation. So, after barely writing at all during those trying weeks, I can
Things have become a little hectic here in the dragon's den over the past few weeks and, in order not to lose sight of it all, I had to make a few changes. One of these changes is that my blog and my newsletter will now go out on the first Monday of every month - like today. So, you will get fewer newsletters/blogs but filled with more, awesome content. There are several reasons things are so hectic at the moment. The most important one, of course, is that I am working on sev
Can you believe it is already June? Half the year is almost gone and I ask myself: what have I accomplished? Looking back, the first thing that comes to mind is that I have only published one book so far this year. Then, I am reminded of all the other things I have done this year, such as the 200,000 words I have already written; the 30 different swag designs I have created; the Twitter ads; the blog tours; the fairs and markets. It has been a busy year and despite what life
Sometimes, life throws lemons at you and, when it does, I bring out the tequila. Not everything has gone smoothly over the past few weeks, but I have carried on, regardless, pushing through some of the tougher things life has thrown at me. But, every now and then, the lemon is best served with tea, instead of tequila. I set myself a deadline for FORBIDDEN ELEMENTAL and tried my best to stick to it. Life happened along the way and I had to push the release date back to June an
