This is it, folks, we've reached that time of year. June: when it really, REALLY starts to feel like summer. Good luck smelling nice for the next few months, because chances are, you're going to be permanently sweaty until September. These anímals feel your paín, though, and whíle some of them ...

Very good #writingtips  
You can't always hire a professional for your proofreading and editing needs, but you can learn how to check your own work more effectively.

Story
Tagline
A children's author but I also write other stuff.
Introduction
I can’t remember NOT having a book in my hand. My schoolmates called me a bookworm, and nothing’s changed since then. I was brought up on the children’s classics because my parents are also avid readers. My earliest story-telling talents came to the fore when, from the age of ten, I entertained my three younger brothers and their friends with serialized tales of children undertaking dangerous and exciting exploits, which they survived through courage and ingenuity (of course!).

After three university degrees and a sojourn studying drama in London (The Drama Studio) and mime in Paris (Ecole Jacques le Coq), I returned to South Africa and spent a few years teaching drama, and producing and performing in local community theatre. A move to Johannesburg took me in the direction of writing. The Secret of the Sacred Scarab is my first children's book, and the first in the middle-grade adventure series The Chronicles of the Stone. I have also completed the second book in the series: The Search for the Stone of Excalibur. I have just completed Book Three: The Temple of the Crystal Time-Keeper (set in Central America). I also write animal rescue stories to raise funds for various animal rescue organisations.

Bragging rights
I have (to my great surprise) received several awards and nominations for my first book. You can read about them on my author site.
