April 2012

The desire to write was a silent wish I rarely talked about, keeping personal journals year after year. In my late forties, I found myself overwhelmed by life's experiences.

This became a trigger that launched me into a new season. I have discovered much about myself and explore the many facets of writing, finding my peace within the walls of books and paper.

I have self-published 4 books so far, and write short stories in my native tongue on a regular basis which can be read at Ink in Afrikaans and my blog, Vanuit my pen.

More books are waiting for me and I plan to publish at least two in 2020. The stories in my mind an ever-growing source of creativity.

I have completed a Life Coaching course and is busy with the Artist's Way by Julia Camer

It is still an unanswered question.
The why is easy. It is filled with suspense, intrigue and those stunts blew my mind. (less)

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”

“There are three questions every woman should be able to answer yes to before they commit to a man. If you answer no to any of the three questions, run like hell."
"Does he treat you with respect at all times? That's the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you've found a good man.”

Lynelle Clark Our Dreams shape us as persons. Words are the common bond that helps us to accomplish and reach out. Words bring comfort, healing and are in general a blessing. But words can also break and destroy. In books, we learn the trappings and how people react in different scenarios. It enables us to become better and we walk in our purpose. The motivational directives we get gives us the courage to walk the road.

Lynelle Clark I am running a fundraiser for the distribution of all four of my books and decided to run a free offer with Bella's Choice. If you are interested please consider downloading your copy now. The offer is only available for a limited time. And if so incline, leave a review. It will help to boost the book on Amazon and reaching more readers.

T.S. Krupa Thanks for connecting, Lynelle! Love meeting fellow authors! Really looking forward to reading your reviews and recommendations. :)

Lynelle Clark Hi there
It is nice to meet you too. Saw you on Bookblogs so I thought I will run over and add.
Yes it seems when the kids leave the nest we can finally allow the creativity to come on out without the constant interruptions. Not that we mind though. Will not say it out loud where they could here it "I miss them greatly"
Congratulations with the new book.

Suneeta Misra Great to connect with you Lynelle. Hmmm....South Africa- such a romantic place to live in! Like you, I started writing when my children grew old enough to not need me in their lives. Hope you pick up my romantic murder mystery Rani of Rampur, set in India, and published on Amazon. Here is the link:

Lynelle Clark It is a pleasure, would love to know you better.
