Kerry Robinson … A journey of love and hopeWell, I can certainly say that this novel swept away any winter blues and took me to the far-off shores of Hawaii on a beautiful journey.I adored this book and loves the two stories of strong, fierce women although I have to admit my favourite was CiCi's.

What if…blessings flow?

Earlier this year, I was nominated for the 2019 SBAA International Women’s Day leadership awards in the Entertainment, Creative Arts and Media Industry. To say I was surprised and thrilled would be an understatement. Of course I accepted the nomination, and underwent a rigorous evaluation process with over a dozen other nominees. One of the

What if…it’s time for a change?

I've always followed my creative inspiration. Whether as a dancer, choreographer, director, speaker and now as a writer, I listen to the still, small voice within. And it's telling me it's time for a change. So, I'm changing genres and writing cozy murder mysteries instead of romance. My first series, the Diana Daniels Murder Mysteries

Avid Reader … A lovely intergenerational family drama set in an untouched paradise This is the second novel I've read by the author and, though very different from Retribution (which I loved), this novel has its own strengths. It's the saga of a???? Hawaiian family dynasty, but focused on two generations of strong women and their❤

What if…it’s not lonely being a writer?

I'm a naturally talkative, gregarious person who thrives in the company of others. Having spent the first three decades of my life on the stage and screen, I admit I still miss the buzz of performing and the joy of directing. Since writing is a solitary profession, I've had to adapt to spending
