I see the odd look, I hear the odd whisper. What is it to you?  It's not your hair. Why do you care? Cut it to conform? Conform to what? To appease your pre-conceived ideas. I don't think so. There was a time when I would have cared. I might have had doubt

Private life, public life, striking the balance? Simply your life week. Well, this is what I've been doing for a while. I think. OK, OK, I'm still working on it. It's not easy, but I'm trying. Trouble is there's always too much to do, and it's hard to let

Switch on your laptop, read the papers, listen to the radio, connect onto social media, and what do you see? The world in all its misery. I'm optimistic by nature, it's probably saved me many times. I have to believe, find the strength somewhere. Still, y

The end of the world as we know it I'd meant to write this post sooner, but here goes. What would you do if it was the end of the world? Me, I'd hold on to my dear ones. The end of the world, much written about, much talked about, and much fantasised. Not

What do you do when you're burnt out and not all that well? After a very busy year writing and churning out a few more books I needed a break. Yes, we do travel a lot, but this was just for sheer enjoyment and peace. Unexpectedly I found myself in one of

So a few days ago, I sat down to write a post for WOTV, it was called Ah, these fur babies. I had it all worked out, but as I started writing my mind took over. This does happen quite a lot, whether I'm writing novels or features. I meant to talk about our

They say you can judge a person by the way they treat animals... I would agree with that. I'm reminded how much I wanted a pet when I was a child. My mother had a no fur, no feather policy. My father had a dog before he met her, being non-grata in our hous

Well sometimes. Many of us will go through despair such we truly believe we will never recover. That one trauma, heartache, loss too much. The last drop that will sink your ship. Then a rainbow lights up our lives and wakes us up. In my case, a French conn

I'm sure I won't be the only one to have experienced this. You think you've got your life sorted, you've got where you wanted to be and suddenly, you get your one-way ticket to hell. I'm not one who gives up easily, I wouldn't be here today if I did. I cou

Do we really have one purpose in life? I believe we have many. Some people know what they want to be from an early age, others don't. Sometimes you can find what you're good at very late in life. That's OK, that's life. It doesn't matter as long as we fina

To me sex is linked to love. I wouldn't engage in sex without love and a strong connection. Everybody is free to do what they want as long as they're not hurting anybody, that's my personal choice. Two people are in love, they're kissing. What's wrong with

Yesterday, I wrote a post following the news of Steve Job's death. Reading many tributes in the papers it is obvious how he touched many lives and perhaps influenced many as well. So, here's the story on how he changed mine, how I cried when I got mine. As

You know these lovely people who make a point to leave a comment because they have nothing better to do and just want to annoy someone. Just for the hell of it. Why do they do it? I'm all for constructive criticism and a fair exchange but this? You make a

I'm back, more or less. It will take some time to get back to "normal" Did I say normal? What is normal anyway? Book launch is getting nearer so I'd better get my act together. I've missed you all. Thank you so much for all the lovely messages and your con

I have loved as always being a woman on the verge this month. One of my Twitter friends described me the other day as a writer on the verge, thank you Mark. Loved it, he always makes me smile.   This month again was crammed full of fantastic posts. What an

  OK, I love Facebook. Only idiots don't change their minds.     Say what? I hear you scream. All my friends laughed, my editor smiled. I resisted going on Facebook, and now I'm loving it. After just one day. Truth is I struggled with the concept of the

So my people said, 'you must go on Facebook.' What? I don't do Facebook. Gasp, 'but you must, must, must...' So, why not? I've been on many social networks, why not Facebook? Well, I told my editor. Why do I need FB when I'm already on Twitter, Linkedin an

    Imagine a world with no gender wars, a world where everyone treats others with respect... A place where gender doesn't matter, where you're allowed to be yourself, where you do not have to conform to stereotypes... Why do we put labels on people? Why t

Why the divide? Why not live together and accept our differences? And our similarities! Yes, they do exist. I have many male friends who are way more sensitive than women I know. And then, there is my husband. Sensitive, caring... He doesn't care about sta
