Hello, and a very warm welcome to my writing desk where you will find a number of options to items which I hope will be of interest.

The Dogs (and cats) of Our Lives button will take you to a series of forty, self-contained, short stories, in which I have chronicled the lives of the many pets who have padded across the pages of my life during the four decades of my marriage. 

The central focus of Dogs of Our Lives are the stirring events of the year 2000, which are described in the fifteen stories beginning with Stop! Thief! and ending with Finale. These fifteen stories are in chronological order and will be difficult to follow if you read them at random.

The next button is My Testimony, in which I describe how I converted from someone who thought she was a Christian to someone who knows she is.

This brings me to my latest venture - the This & That button. Clicking on this button will take you to two options: 

The first is a series of six studies entitled Standing Firm. These deal with learning to control and overcome negative emotions. If you have ever struggled with resentment or rage, anxiety or depression, then I do hope you will find these studies useful. 

The second option under This & That is entitled Roads Less Travelled. This is a photographic journey through the northern areas of the Kruger Park. Both Standing Firm and Roads Less Travelled are under construction. Chapters will be added as they become ready.

Finally, I have published two novels - Ring of Fire and A Lily among Thorns. If you are interested in finding out more about them, then click on the Books button. Included are reviews and two chapters from each manuscript. I have also added the story behind the stories describing the motivation behind writing the books.

The Shop button will give details as to how to order them.
