Romance and Erotica Author
Born and raised in Zimbabwe, and now living in England. I’m a wife and mother of two wonderful daughters and four adorable young grandchildren. I’m an incurable romantic and love long walks on a sandy beach at sunset. I am obsessed with the colour purple and a total chocoholic. Poetry is my first love and passion and I’ve been writing poems since the age of ten. My family and friends kept encouraging me to write and publish my first book and I am so glad I have finally achieved this goal. It is by no means my last book either, as I have many more romantic stories to tell.
One of my favourite pass times is to walk along the beaches of which we have quite a few lovely ones here in Norfolk UK. I also love spending time with my grandchildren, we read stories and build sand castles and do arts and crafts together.
I’m an incurable romantic and only ever read romance novels, regardless whether they are fiction, fantasy or paranormal and occasionally historical. Lady Chatterley’s Lover was my first romantic novel I read in my early teens, apart from those SEE magazines we use to get back in those days and then of course Mills and Boons, but soon got bored with those.
Poetry is my passion and it was how I started my journey into writing. I love reading and writing poetry and often write a poem which will be my gateway into a new story.
My favourite colour is and always has been purple although lately I have added orange to my colours for my author profile photo as I have discovered the Phoenix mythical bird and feel this is me.
My vision for the future is to live my dream and spend my days writing. A comfy chair and desk in a bay window, looking out to sea, either in Cyprus or Spain. Although Cyprus stole my heart. The history and mythical legends of Greek Gods, the story of Aphrodite, it was all so romantic and mystical. Swimming in the sea at Aphrodite’s rock was awesome for me. I know this sounds crazy but it was like stepping back into a legend. Incredible experience even though the water was freezing. All the underground cities, it was just mind blowing to walk through the ruins. To be able to go back there and sit in those mythical places and feel the vibrations of legends and write ….. (sighs) this is my dream. To write a Greek mythical love story using the tales of the Greek gods as a guide and weaving them into my words.
I love reading about myths and legends, magical and spiritual things. Lately I have discovered there is so much more to the Phoenix bird and going to research her a lot more. This bird is who I want to be …. To emerge renewed and ready to take on the world, to find the courage to tackle things that always seemed impossible, to finally climb my mountain and reach for the stars.
In my spare time I like to read and write of course and I find writing poetry helps me get in touch with my inner emotions and brings out the best in me when I sit down to write a story. I often find writing a poem about the story I want to write will help set the guidelines for the novel. As with my poem “The Painter” on Wattpad it has led to the start of my novel in progress “The Gypsy Painted Me”.
I am always overwhelmed by sunsets over the sea and blown away by the lightning displays during a storm over the sea. I love every phase of the sea, its beauty when its calm and its rough and violent waves in a storm. Do I swim in the sea? I always use to, but as I have got older I have developed a severe fear of sharks and don’t venture in further than my knees.
