Zodiac Signs. True, Not True?

One of the “hot” topics of late, is Zodiac signs. Many fully believe in them, while others dispute them altogether. Some even go as far as, daily, following horoscopes in order to figure out how to “live life”. Now, I do not fully believe nor disbelieve in Zodiac signs. I can find truth to them…

You Never Know Until You Try

Looking back, my life seems like a series of “splats”. They say, “You never know, until you try,” and “If you don’t jump, then you might not fly.” I am not talking about immoral risks or anything else of the sort. Nor am I talking about utterly ridiculous attempts that you know should definitely not…

You Are Loved And You Are Important

Busy reading The Love That Saved Me From The Love Of My Life, by Nomzamo Mosia. Each one of Nomzamo’s books have impacted me deeply, so I thought it was important to share this one chapter, from her book: We walk this journey of life not knowing the Love of God, the Love of The…

Who Am I?

I am so thankful to those people who sent so many messages, telling me that they can wholeheartedly relate to what I had written in my Book, Misunderstood. Even though I aim to let others know that they are not alone, the feedback received also, in turn, made me feel like I am also not…

What Happened?

What happened to common decency? What happened to being truthful? What happened to dignity and respect? What happened to “do unto others as you would have them done unto you”? Is it all just fictional or fantasy stories that we talk about but none of it really seems to exist on this planet? It’s just…

What Goes Up, Must Come Down

I am guilty! Lock me up and throw away the key! Like they say, “What goes up, must come down.” After two weeks of a sudden excessive burst of energy, redoing my entire house… and to extremes at that… my body finally hit a “crash”. Not a proper one, but a good enough one to…

Voices In Hiding

I am utterly speechless… no words! Goosebumps! Floored! Wow! Over the last number of weeks, being flooded with people reaching out to me because of my book Leviathan Walks AND The Best Friend, I had never expected this to happen… I have been receiving message after message from those who used to be part of…

Unspoken Secrets Of The Past

I must admit that I did not expect to be where I am right now. I did not expect to come face-to-face, head on, with the memories and turmoil from my past regarding Cecilia Steyn and the rest of the Krugersdorp Killers. I never expected that I would eventually talk about things that NO ONE…

United States Of Tara. Wow!

Over the last few days, I have been binge watching the series “United States of Tara.” I don’t even know how many times I have watched this series, since it came out; and yes, I binge watch it each time. Why? Simply, because it’s brilliant. Not accurate, but still brilliant. What is “United States of…

Time. Perfectly Irrelevant.

As most mornings go around 3am, I wake up with my mind on overdrive… sorting puzzle pieces and trying to make some kind of sense on some random topic or other. I think consciously, I have way too much on my mind; usually, a chaotic whirlwind of thoughts regarding work, life and everything in between,…

This Is FAR HARDER Than I Let People Realize

Record. Pause. Heart Racing. Tears welling up. Lump in my throat. Record. Pause. Sobbing my eyes out. Delete… Try again… Talking about all of these things regarding Cecilia Steyn is far harder for me than I let people realize. I could not put it into typed out words, but I thought I would try talk…

Therapy Overload?

All through my life, I have had several “go to” traits when it comes to sorting out what’s going on in my life or, mostly, sorting out my thoughts. Now, I am OCD, so not being able to “physically” compartmentalize my thoughts into categories, sub categories and, basically, an overall mind map, at the very…

The Krugersdorp Killers. Reality Check

This story about the Krugersdorp Killers seems to be a never ending part of my life. I was part of this story for 4 years. Escaped and helped investigators for the next 9 or so years… over an entire decade, seemingly “dedicated” to things revolving around Cecilia Steyn. When the case was closed and the…

The Krugersdorp Killers. A Dent In My Life

When I think about this part of my life, too many thoughts come rushing back all at once; so many thoughts that I honestly don’t even know where to begin when it comes to talking about it. I am yet to start writing my new book, The Best Friend… Why? Two reasons: I am finalizing…

The Dating Game. What Gives?!

This is one topic that I don’t think I’ll ever understand the “game plan” to. First of all, why is it a game? Why on earth do people feel the need to play it? I might be the only one that thinks this way, or maybe not. Hopefully not. Let’s start at the beginning of…

The Best Friend. Let’s Start…

I can most definitely say that I wasn’t planning to start this book, The Best Friend, any time soon. It required too much “of me” mentally and emotionally to dive in… and each time I thought about how much I had to cover for this book… well, I avoided it. It is, simply, too much…

Speechless, With Too Much To Say…

Do you ever get those days where your mind is overwhelmed with seemingly endless things but you find yourself utterly speechless? Even mentally speechless? All simply because so much is rushing through your mind, all at once, on so many topics, but at the same time, you can’t catch your breath, to be able to…

Shorts, The New Diaper!

Brace yourself for this new discovery! I don’t know why I have only thought of it now?! Shorts are… or can be… the new diaper! Yes, I’m being serious. Let me explain… when I first got my 8 year old Spaniel, he was obviously not house trained at all or, perhaps, just overly adamant that…

Shattered In The Moonlight

I don’t even know where to begin, except to say that I am utterly broken… and confused… so confused. I can’t hide behind a wall right now… I can’t distance myself from the emotions… this is very real. I am shattered beyond belief. For several months now, I had hung onto hope… I even DARED…

Rock Bottom

A month and 1 day ago, my grandmother passed away. I will never forget the moment I found out. I cried so hard. I hit the walls saying, “It isn’t true!!!”… and cried more. The tears did not stop. One of 3 most loved, most teasured, most irreplaceable people in my life… was now gone.…
