About Me
I'm happily married, with amazing children, and I work as a Shipping Manager for an Import Company in Durban, South Africa. I love to laugh loudly, dance like no one is watching,and I try very hard not to regret the things that make me smile - in fact, if it makes me smile, it's worth doing. In the middle of getting some of my poetry into an Anthology.
Type of Writer
I have written poetry for quite a long time, but short stories are newer for me. I enjoy writing more darkly sometimes.
Writing Style
I love the challenge of finding the right magic to bring my work together... the rhyme for the poem, the plot for the story.
I enjoy reading, and have recently acquired a kindle. When my mom passed away almost two years ago, I stopped writing, but after completing an intensive creative writing course last year,I feel the pull to write again. I also teach scrapbooking.
Favorite Genres
Thriller, Drama, Detective with some light hearted romance thrown in. I seem to write good erotica.
Favorite Books
I generally read books by favored authors, though I recently read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and 9th Judgement. I have just started a Nicholas Sparks novel.
Favorite Authors
James Patterson, Tess Gerritsen, Harlan Coban,Mary Higgins Clark, John Grisham, Michael Palmer, Stuart Woods, and some Stephen King
Favorite Poets
I don't have a favourite poet although I enjoy reading poetry on WDC.
Favorite Quote
When someone hurts you, cry a river,build a bridge and get over it.
Favorite Music
Wow, so many. All the 80's music, more recently Shane Ward, the Killers, the Parlotones, some of Adam Lambert, I prefer compilations of music I can listen to, rather than a cd of just one singer or group.
Favorite Movies
Pretty Woman, Armageddon, How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Dreamer, Secretariat, Sea Biscuit, Paranormal Activities 1 and 2, the Twilight series, What Women Want.
