like a kid in a candy story when I’m in there. I simply don’t know where to start. Our daughter and daughter-in-law share my fetish and I know whatever I buy, they’ll love.
My favourite stationery? I adore those little post-it stickers and only take them down around my work space when I feel a bit threatened by all the yellow reminders.
I love any and all kinds of journals – the empty pages are filled with so many possibilities – a story, a note, a list of books I still want to read, a diary of a trip, a recipe, a pattern, the beginnings of a love story …
And pencils! There is just something about them – the smell always transports me back to simpler times before the world was ruled by technology. And somehow, the idea that whatever you write down with a pencil is temporary, can be changed, erased – fascinates me.
Don’t get me wrong – I love technology. I’m completely in love with my small, shiny, white laptop on which I write all the weird and wonderful conversations that always seem to be taking place in my head among people I have yet to meet.
One of these stories is coming out on 1 July – Touched to the heart.
It is the first in what I hope to be a series on the Cavallo brothers – tycoons and owners of boutique hotels in South Africa, London and the
Seychelles. The first story is about Don who met Caitlin when he injured his back during a cycling race. She is a physiotherapist and when she touches his injured back, she also manages to touch his heart.
I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know them.
When it comes to men, if physiotherapist Caitlin Sutherland didn't have bad luck, she would have no luck at all. To help cope, Caitlin starts blogging in her spare time, about the types of men she meets and the bad dates she goes
While on duty during the annual Wines to Whales bicycle race, a gorgeous, sweaty cyclist walks in and sets her hormones dancing. But he
is Don Cavallo; one of the four Cavallo brothers — hotel tycoons, famous as much for their business skills as for the number of beauties regularly seen on their arms.
Don Cavallo has his own issues with the other sex. He has yet to find one who is interested in him and not in his money or hotels. But when this sexy physio puts her hands on his back she not only touches his body, but also his heart.
They've both been burned before, but neither of
them can stop themselves from playing with fire.
Bio: I have been reading love stories for as long as I can remember and when I ‘met’ the classic authors like Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Henry James The Brontë sisters, etc. during my
studies, I was hooked for life.
I married my college boyfriend and soul mate and after 39 years, 3 beautiful children and 3 grandchildren, he still makes me weak in the knees. We are fortunate to live in the picturesque
little seaside village of Betty's Bay, South Africa with the ocean a block away and a beautiful mountain right behind us. And although life so far has not always been an easy ride, it has always been an exiting and interesting one!
I like the heroines in my stories to be beautiful, feisty, independent and headstrong. And the
heroes must be strong but possess a generous amount of sensitivity. They are of course, also gorgeous! My stories typically incorporate the family background of the characters to better understand where they come from and who
they are when we meet them in the story.
