SELIMA BOOK COVERMy dear friends, I cannot express the joy I feel right now. I have been working on this novel for over two years, and have never put so much effort into anything in my life. Aside from death or trouble in my family, there is not much else that can bring me to tears. My emotions took me by surprise.


The Cover

The art work was designed by Jason Jarvis, and the graphics were done by Derik Smith. What do you think? Do you love it as much as I do? Their combined effort was more than I had hoped for. To say that I am pleased is an understatement. This cover is amazing if I do say so myself 😉


My Surprise!

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to read my novel FOR A LIMITED TIME  at http://www.swoonreads.com/m/selima-and-the-merfolk

I would greatly appreciate your support. Be sure to rate, comment and share. The novel is young adult, so it is appropriate for children from 13 years old. I have had a few adults read it and they liked it as well.

With all of my heart I want to thank everyone who has helped me with the project. Great things cannot be accomplished without help, and I feel very fortunate that I was assisted by such talented people.

I truly hope that you love what I have put out, and will support this project.

Special thanks to all my followers, and all the people who have taken the time to like and comment on my posts.

Have a wonderful and prosperous New Year. I pray that your 2014 is 100 times better than your 2013.



I’m beginning to wonder if I could be a pawn in a future ghost story.

Plot …
A girl is a great employee.
She does her job, with limited resources and manages to keep most people happy.
She doesn’t know the company is a living, emotional entity.

The company forms an attachment to her.
It punishes everyone on the compound every time she leaves.
It obstructs the workday until someone calls her, and by extension acknowledges it.
The girl stupidly answers the call, and sometimes even rushes back to work.
She’s on the compound mere minutes and everything magically starts to work again.

On Wednesday, I was forced to leave work early, due to a family emergency. I’ve lost count, but I can’t seem to leave work, without the network and the Internet going down. Not that I am absent often. Sometimes one has to do what one has to do.

The weird thing is that, this problem began when I went on a two-month vacation, late last year. Since then the problem persists. Nine out of ten times this happens when I am not in office.

Could there really be a head office (?).
Is there a spirit, ghost, jumbie, jinn, that has attached itself to me?
Or does it have an interest to me?

These types of situations seldom end well for the poor sap, who realizes too late that she’s offended a being she didn’t know existed, by doing something that is regular for her. Then it obliterates her, and her body is never found.

She becomes victim number one in the new urban legend, ghost story, nancy story, folklore, of the girl who took too much time off.
