About Me

I'm an author; a wife still in love with her husband after more than a decade together (and Lord knows how we haven't strangled each other in the meantime!); an in-over-her-head, perfectly-flawed and imperfect mum to a teenage boy; a best-buddy stepmum to a young-adult lad; a total bookaholic and book junkie with an exponentially growing TBR pile; an incompetent housewife desperate to channel Bree van de Kamp & Nigella Lawson (and failing miserably!)... Though my cooking has gotten better... And I've come to love baking... *grin*

...That being said, I'm in my early thirties and I hail from the multicultural, rainbow-nation island of Mauritius, in the southern Indian Ocean. Recently, I became the holder of a BA in Communications Science, but the corporate world has no grip over me because I tried that life and found I was totally allergic to office politics, one-upmanship and the back-stabbing culture prevalent in Corporate today. I gladly settled to become a SAHM when my son was born.

Since then, the call of words and the prospect of meeting handsome, passionate heroes in between pages of a book have lured me with their siren song, and I've never been happier.

I have been working as a freelance editor since being in my early twenties, and with my bestie and business partner, Natalie G. Owens, we operate Divas At Work, a venture where we offer professional editing and critique service to authors, especially indies.

On the personal side, I'm a TV show addict; a shoeholic (who also has a soft spot for handbags...and coats...and shiny things...); a healthy food nut (clean foods, good fats, all that hoopla. I still eat all my cakes & ice-cream, though); as well as an exercise junkie! (former couch potato me could never believe she'd say that one day!) And oh yeah, I'm a 2x breast cancer survivor (hence maybe why I became the healthy food nut and the exercise freak...)

And if that makes a difference for you to know this... I am a Muslim woman of Indian origin. I tend to think of myself as modern muslimette, but hey, best way to find out if I'm a freak or just a regular, normal person is to befriend me. *grin*

I love meeting people and making new friends (and if you give me feedback on my books, all the better!). Don't hesitate to get in touch with me!

From Mauritius with love,
