I am an author or—in my created world, where language is far more musical—a Word-Weaver, and I delight in these magic word-weavings that let me whisk you away even faster than stepping into an enchanted wardrobe.
But besides the delight I find in writing, there’s another reason I tell stories. I am a Christ-follower, and I believe he was the greatest story-teller of all time. His stories constantly pointed to a powerful king seeking to save what was his, and my stories do the same. His stories reached into the hearts of his hearers with truth, and in receiving this truth, their lives were transformed. I believe stories have the power to change hearts, and because of that all my books have echoes of Christ’s Grace-filled voice in them. Always, it is my hope that my stories can reach hearts and transform lives, as his did.
When I’m not word-weaving, you can bump into me in Johannesburg, walking my dog, playing tennis, drinking coffee with my friends or making music with my husband, Roy. I have two daughters, both finding their feet in adulthood, and I dedicated The Poison Tree Path Chronicles trilogy to them. One of them loved every word of the books. The other merely uses them to prop up her Marvel movie collection. I’m not holding it against her.
