Stay a while to share my thoughts on writing and life.

Premonitions (Recognitions, Book II) out soon!

I am thrilled and can hardly wait until the end of the month, for the release of my second novel, Premonitions (the second book in the Recognitions series). I’ve had many messages from readers asking about Amelia, Adele and their upcoming adventures. I can now disclose that both Adele and Amelia will make their way to Paris, where some of the threads of their stories begin to tie together.

It is often difficult to write a sequel to a novel that has so many possibilities, but Netgalley advance readers gave Premonitions some great and thoughtful reviews. If you’d like to get a glimpse of Premonitions, you can get it through these reviews, below. Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to read and review the advance copies of Premonitions!


This was the 2nd book in series by this author. I did not know that.
This was a paranormal great story line tjat will captivate you till the end. I did not know that too.
This was a short book to read. I wish I knew that too.
I am looking forward to another book by this author because what I read was great! You will find out that too!


Well, I am at a loss for words. All I can really say is I loved this book.
I thought the storyline was well thought out and beautifully, hauntingly written. I fell in love with the characters right from the start. The storyline flowed seemlessly from one generation to another. I cannot wait for book three in this series.
Well worth a read though I do have one suggestion. DON’T start reading this book while you are on a meal break at work!! You will find it impossible to put down like I did.


I read this book without having read the first in the trilogy but this didn’t stop me from enjoying or understanding the book. I will, however, go back and read ‘Recognitions’.

‘Premonitions’ follows three story lines, set in present day New York, France at the time of the revolution and 16th century West Africa. In America, Amelia has a new relationship with a man she feels connected to, however her husband has asked if they can give it another go… In France, Adele lives in a loveless marriage. She had imagined a glittering life with her husband, with trips to Paris and dancing, and finds herself unhappy and unfulfilled by motherhood. She still holds a candle for the local schoolteacher and one day their paths cross again… Meanwhile in Africa, white men ransack a small village, taking away the young men and killing many. It is witnessed by the shaman’s apprentice who must now take on the mantle of his teacher and become the witch doctor for the village and potentially protect the village should white men return.

To some extent the stories intertwine, through past life memories, or shadows of them, and dreams. But don’t expect any conclusion at the end of this book as there is a third book to come.
