Urcelia Teixeira is an award-winning author of gripping Christian suspense thrillers.

You will enjoy her books if you like twisty mysteries tinged with clean action, page-turning suspense, and deep-rooted biblical truths.
All her books are free from profanity and unnecessary sexually suggestive scenes.

She made her writing debut in December 2017, kicking off her newly discovered author journey with her fast-paced archaeological adventure thriller novels that readers have described as ‘Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft with a twist of Bourne.’

But, five novels in, and nearly eighteen months later, she had a spiritual awakening, and she wrote the sixth and final book in her Alex Hunt Adventure Thriller series. She now fondly refers to The Caiaphas C

Hi Sarah. 😊

Thanks for your question.

Writers block is just one of the little challenges all authors face from time to time and can really drive one round the bend.

I usually stop and switch off all electronics, forums etc and just return to normal life. I escape with a good book or movie which 9/10 times kickstart the creative juices again. I don’t stress about it too much as this is counterproductive. I find the harder I try the more clogged my brain gets.

Often, when I least expect it, my creative brain unleashes and the story moves forward.

Hope my answer satisfies. 😊(less)

“Carina feels her heart pounding through her chest. Her breathing becoming increasingly unstable with every step he takes towards her. Frozen stiff not able to move her legs she watches as he comes closer and closer to her stopping directly in front of her.
He’s much taller than her. Her head bent backwards with her eyes fixed on his. He pauses as they gaze into each other’s eyes for just a moment before he ....”
Urcelia Teixeira, Little Darling

“My jaw throbs under another punch in response to my silence. I'm sure this one has dislodged my tooth. The harsh metal taste of my blood fills my mouth as I try to catch my breath and spit a ball of saliva in his face.”

“ The blood gushes from my swollen eyebrow making it nearly impossible to see. I recall how the rebels ambushed us in the village and all hell broke loose. The ground team scattered all over the place. I lost sight of Eric when they pulled the black sack-cloth over my face. I did recognize the gunshot. One single bullet. Is it possible that Eric got shot?”

Urcelia Teixeira, Alex Hunt and the Chase for Rhapta

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts. It is a sword that kills.”
Urcelia Teixeira, The Gilded Treason

Hi Fenixbird
Glad to meet you. 😊

I was a Realtor before I woke up one day and decided to take hold of my dream to author at least one book and just go for it, and before I knew what hit me I had penned 4 books! 🤣

South Africa is my homeland — fascinating place with much to offer.
You’re welcome to private message or email me. I love getting to know people.

Hope to see you between my pages!

U 😊


Fenixbird SandS hi urcelia! Thx for adding me as a friend here...how awesome you are a writer? AND from So Africa? Golly


Urcelia Teixeira “We had been at it so long it has almost become mechanical. Like breathing. Something you just do without thinking about it. Day in and day out in the treacherous African sun. None of us ever thought of quitting. We all just keep going in the hope and anticipation that someday... one day... we will find the lost city of Rhapta."
