Dark Days, a Marie Claire feature, and a free book

marie claire screenshotDear Readers

I’ve had a couple of tough weeks in my personal life which put my writing on hold (including moving house, my beautiful old cat dying, and a week in hospital with my baby daughter after a terrible scare).

Usually writing gets me through dark days, but I found it impossible to write in hospital. Caring for precious Alex was a full time job, and I was dealing with a lot of heartache.

But we’re home now and recovering, and I’m preparing to start my new book.

I don’t have a title for it yet, but the plan is to write a snappy prequel novella / series starter for the When Tomorrow Calls series, featuring Keke as the main character, and launch it in January.


I still can’t believe how well book 1 did on the Amazon charts. I was dreaming of breaking into the top 1000, and we got up to #43! Incredible.

Thank you for supporting the launch. I appreciate every order and your reviews have been more than generous!

For those who have not yet picked up the new releases, you can do so here: What Have We Done and The Stepford Florist. I’d love to know what you think!


I was fortunate enough to be included in this Marie Claire feature about South African women in Science Fiction. If you’re interested, you can read it here.


Thank you to my two new patrons this month, Claire Wickham and Joni Mielke. I can’t wait to name some characters after you!

I still owe Elize van Heerden a character, but I’m waiting for the next Grey Magic book to do that.

If you’d like to support my writing with as little as a coffee ($2) a month, you can do so via Patreon. Cheers!


I have Audible codes! If you’d like to review one of my audiobooks, please reply with your choice of title and whether you require a US or UK code.
