Said "Once I decided to make lemonade out of this lockdown season - storyline ideas kicked in. At this rate I might have another book in the making .I now wish I had started the lemonade making process early . When life gives you lemons - be prepared to make lemons ."

Said "I am excited to be teaching young speakers , “ Not just another speech “ . Sometimes we make this speaking business too complicated for ourselves .The basic principle from Grade 4 - introduction , body and conclusion is a must regardless of wether the speech is being delivered at Word Bank or high school morning assembly."

Said "I am editing the biography of a widow who made it against all odds. It is scary to think her battles were real , her life reads like a fiction movie yet she conquered. I am reminded , healing is indeed a choice"

About Me:
I am a published writer with two fiction books to my name and one children’s book . As a story-teller I believe not only in telling the story right but in editing that brings clarity to the reader.I love a well told story.

My editing life started during high school after attending a writer’s workshop .I was trained by the local Literature Bureau .I was one of the youngest outside editors at that time. My job was to review submitted scripts, advise the writer and recommend those that had a chance of being published.

Over the years I have edited many manuscripts, devotionals , short stories and anthologies . I wrote the foreword to the much loved book , From My Belly To Yours by Tshamani Mathebula.

I believe in the power of the written word and editing is key to getting the message...
