Life does not give guarantees and therefore it is essential to appreciate family. My daughters, parents and sisters are precious to me. I learn wisdom from my parents every day. My daughters are dynamic which makes me infinitely proud of them. Our inspiring moments are when we have deep conversations and I rediscover their womanhood and motherhood.
I already knew from a young age that I wanted to become a writer. Throughout my youth I wrote several plays. And I have to add – I played in them all. And of course, the lead role. After all, it was my story to tell!
Tastes, Flavours, Sounds and Colours
There is a lot of work that needs to be done correctly before a book can be published. Teamwork is of utmost importance. My proofreader and editor, Wilna Dippenaar, reads my heart when she edits my work. She is my biggest inspiration. Leoni Benghiat from SA Vryskutskrywer, and Charlene Lewthwaite who reads my English pieces over and over again, Amanda Espag with her dedicated illustrations and Naranda Leeuwner with her exuberant laugh. This is the team that gives me inspiration.
