I am a South African mom of two girls, married for 18 years. I'm happiest when I'm out in nature or walking my labrador. I'm busy editing my first YA novel that took me almost 3 years to write. My heart is to stay really close to God so that He can shine through me, not only in my writing, but in my every word and action - Php 2:15. So often my own nature gets in the way, however, and this struggle is often reflected in my writing.
