I wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you to you all for the support you have given me this year as I took my first steps as an author. It was such a daunting prospect and I doubted myself and whether I could do it many times. However, the response to ‘The Pretender’ has really taken me by surprise. The feedback, reviews and response to the book has been amazing and I wonder why I didn’t do it before. It’s been a dream come true for me.
One of the most memorable and heartwarming moments for me was when I did the Westpoint Christmas Market. Seeing the faces of the children light up when they saw my book was everything. As I looked at those children’s faces beaming back at me I felt that there was a real opportunity for me to try to bring some of that joy to children who are not in a position to buy my book. Spurred on by this, I decided to donate some of my books to a charity called Books 2 Africa so that children in Africa can also experience the same joy as those children I met at the Christmas markets.
As this year draws to a close, I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2019. May all your dreams come true and your lives be full of happiness, love and magic each and every day.
Lots of love,
