I live in Johannesburg, South Africa, and I started writing full time when my successful professional dance career came to a close.
I was always a brilliant storyteller since childhood, keeping friends and family enthralled for hours with my imaginative tales, and after my dancing days ended writing was a natural continuation. Writing fills me with joy and amazes me endlessly!

What a sexy tale! I love the supernatural element, although I would have enjoyed a bit more back story into the main character and more character development for the three men. The steamy sex scenes made up for it, though. Well written with great des ...more
