The newsletter is up and running after I finally worked out how to do it – took the ‘technically challenged me’ a while to learn the quirks, and I’d like to give a huge thank you to Paul Casselle up there in Madrid for walking me through the nightmare of writing a campaign on MailChimp.


Each month I feature new books or those I recommend, the link to the free download of The very Worst Riding School and a competition to win a signed paperback copy of WRS which is a limited edition and only available to my newsletter readers. Interesting facts about Africa and other bits and pieces.

Here is the link for the sign up which is that annoying back and forth emails to convince some robot you do want to receive it.

October has been quite a month, first Amie African Adventure (book 1) was a finalist in the Book Excellence Awards in the category adventure.

I was thrilled to receive that but then a couple of weeks later the Ian Awards (Independent Author Network) chose Amie as a finalist in the Adventure category and Walking over Eggshells in the First Non-fiction category. Both came as a total but great surprise.


In further news, I am off to Miami Florida to the Readers’ Favorite Awards – November 2018 to collect a gold Medal for Amie and the Child of Africa and a Silver medal for Amie: Stolen Future. I am so thrilled and surprised too.
