As an emerging Thriller author most known for my Alex Hunt Archaeological Thriller series, my inspiration for my novels emanate from my keen interest in all things mysterious. From vanished civilizations, ancient relics, and lost treasures to UFO’s, conspiracy theories and bizarre news stories.

As a mother of three sons, I stand little to no chance not to be swept up in classics like Indiana Jones, National Treasure and The Mummy. My busy boys ensure my days are naturally filled with lots of action and adventure!

I read my first book when I was four and never stopped. Action/Adventure books laced with conspiracy and crime are my favorite, which is what I enjoy writing as well.

My insatiable lust for Adventure regularly propels my family and I

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.

“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?”

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."
