Throwback Thursday


There’s no better feeling than writing your first book and seeing it published! The Pact will always be my favourite…

Too many drinks and one bad decision was all it took to change Felicity Hanley’s life forever.

After hitting rock bottom Flic escapes her past by moving to the tranquil wine region, Margaret River, where she develops new friendships and rediscovers a passion she thought was lost.

But, no matter how fast she flees, the trauma of her past is one step ahead—waiting.
Can she trust again, after the last time nearly killed her?

Monday Motivation


Don’t let fear hold you back…take the first step. Even if it’s a baby step to begin with. Get acquainted with being uncomfortable. Embrace the feeling as you move toward conquering your dreams and living life your way!

Don’t wait for tomorrow. Do something…anything…make a Facebook page, head over to Canva and create a marketing image, make a phone call, research relevant information to pursue your desired destination, pour your ideas out on a page, set small achievable goals…tiny steps over time puts distance between you and your initial fear…success is waiting for you!

Ask yourself these two simple questions…what have I got to lose? what more have I got to gain?

You already know the answer, all you need now is to push the fear aside…you can DO IT!

Monday Motivation

Selfless and kind, you_re truly divine. copy

Have you ever done something you’re proud of and your efforts went unnoticed? Reached a milestone with no one to share the excitement? Established your dream business and it didn’t thrive as you hoped? Published a book and no one read it? Made a beautiful dinner and hubby worked late enough for it to spoil?

No matter how big or how small, we’ve all had set backs. Some more detrimental than others. Some so confidence shattering you can’t see past the doom to the success waiting at the top of that very steep mountain in the distance…

This week I’m focusing on the glass half full…the positive in every negative…the thread, no matter how frayed, that steers me to the top of that mountain.

I invite you to join me…DON’T GIVE UP…I believe in you!

JK Rowling, a lady I admire, speaks of finding her true self and the arena where she belonged, in the midst of failure.

Set yourself free, believe in yourself, and strive for the life you want.

You are only confined by the walls you build yourself

A reminder for me to renovate…knock down walls and thrive in the freedom of being!

This makes sense to me on many levels. Once upon a time I always had someone in my life who expected something of me. I have lived my life conforming to the expectations of others. These expectations have stopped me from really knowing my true essence.

This is not so much the case anymore. With a glass half full partner by my side, who supports me every step of the way, I found the strength to knock down many of the walls that restricted me. Walls still stand around me, but I know that anytime I feel them closing in, I can knock them down.

On a different level… indoors, especially confined to a study or bedroom, I find that writing feels like work, like I’m missing out on the excitement going on in the world. Outdoors, by the beach, or even in an open cafe, creativity flows free and my word count climbs.

Knocking down the walls for me is about being in the now as much as possible, and living the life I want.

How do you go about knocking down wall?
