The flight to freedom, unleashed her power. The reconciliations, the peace within, the lessons learned from a little bird of unmatched beauty, who unleashed her power as she conquered the perilous skies, has throughout my life been an inspiration. Queenie’s flight to freedom has enabled me to forge my own unique approach to life; a life lived on two continents and on a forty-foot yacht cruising the seas along the East Coast of Australia.

As a child and teenager, I led a very sheltered life with a mother who ruled with a rod of iron, and a father who, albeit a decorated World War II Veteran, was an abusive and violent alcoholic. I lived at a time when South Africa was governed by the Apartheid regime who would enforce the strongest laws of racial discrimination. The socialisation entrenched would forever have affected my mentality if I had not been able to set myself free and take control of my own life.

Biography/Memoir

The non-fiction, short stories in this collection are a series of events experienced in the life of the Author and family.
They tell the stories of the years of living on board the forty-foot yacht, The Silent Knight, as they cruised the deep and sometimes dangerous seas. The story of challenges, coping with the complexities of raging and mountainous waves coupled with a sense of joie de vivre to celebrate the absolute calm of the oceans;
The idyllic lifestyle of living on Macleay Island enjoying the warm evenings in this paradise, the starlight glistening across the bay, the moon, listening to the screeching of the ground dwelling, mainly nocturnal curlews as they went about their rituals; and
The story of the encounter with a Cheetah, Ntombi, whilst visiting the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
These, and other stories, will hold the reader spellbound in this collection of extraordinary true accounts as experienced by the Author and those of her family and friends. It is a book to keep by your bedside, to dip into at home or travelling. There is no other way to experience these unique journeys than through these fireside stories.
