If Natalie had been born a few odd centuries earlier, she would have been burned as a witch. Her nonconformity has branded her as not-a-sheep and she loves exploring new things without caring too much about what others may think.

She currently spends most of her time running after her two kids but she’s really a Jill of all trades…everything from sewing to pole dancing to painting to calligraphy to baking has taken up her time, but her favourite remains writing.

She lives with her husband, two children, cat and tarantula in a quiet part of Gauteng, South Africa.

I used to think I had favourites but, honestly, as the years go by I have realised that it comes down to one concept: Star-crossed lovers.

The elf and the human girl, forbidden to be together by culture and their own races. The vampire who falls for the mortal girl. The princess who falls in love a peasant though she is betrothed to some foreign prince. Romeo and Juliet. Richard Cypher and Kalan Amnel. Anakin and Padme. Neteri and Jake Sully. Pocahontas and John Smith. The list is endless.

Mushy stuff, I know. But I just can't help it.(less)

And the weirdest thing is, the scenes I write during a writer's block episode are usually actually quite good. Go figure!(less)
