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?

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!

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!

Writing Prompt Wednesday


Upon her back was a tattoo, or was it a brand, a birthmark she had no choice but to wear. Does it make her special, wanted, or feared? How might the markings upon her flesh impact the life she leads or the choices she makes?

Free your imagination. Contemplate the possibilities. And, create a story you would love to read…no doubt, there will be someone else out there who wants to read it too.

Happy writing!

Writing Prompt Wednesday


In my opinion, some days are best spent indoors especially when it’s so icy cold and wet outside.

However, not everyone shares my view, where are they headed…out on a first date? making the most of a lunch break? or too caught up in each others company to notice the weather grows more miserable with every step they take?

Umbrella tilted forward may hinder view, but it’ll prevent the wind catching the brim and folding it inside out…could this be a recipe for disaster as they step out onto the street, visibility compromised as a heavy downpour suddenly hits?

Depending on the genre you’re writing, this could be the scene before tragedy strikes…or the beginning of a love story…anything could happen if you explore the possibility of ‘what if’…

Happy writing!

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.

Pure or at threat of falling? Her fate is in your hands…

Not unlike real life, one choice determines the future. Is she a seeker, guardian, or a protector, or does her path travel the road to the damned…

Happy writing.
