Until rehab happened, I’d never written much more than school work and the odd letter, but I always had a fascination for how words pieced together and flowed. A lot of the healing in Cape Town was triggered by written work. Now, the whole journey from rock-bottom, upwards, has given me an opportunity to release my writing in earnest. The first words I wrote of ‘Awaken’ started an avalanche. I received the ending of the second book and the title of the third, divinely I guess, before I’d finished the first draft of ‘Awaken’. Funny how it just takes that first leap, then there’s no going back – ever!
