ABOUT THE AUTHORI was born on the 1st of March 1970 in Bloemfontein. Grew up in Natal and grew old in Gauteng.41 Years later, I am married , have three children, and still refuse to be normal, or what people would constitute as normal. My world is a world of fantasy, that is where I am grounded, reality surrounds me daily, and whether I like it or not I face it, but I have learned to face it with a dash of fantasy in every situation.I still believe in faeries and netherworlds. Beasties and creepy thingies with fuzzy tails live in my world. There are vampires and lycans, witches and mortals. Rules are made up as we go, and worlds are created when the whim takes me. Language is no barrier because it is all in my mind.My children are a constant inspiration for characters and the mischief they get up to, people around me fascinate me and from them are born villains and heroes, monsters and gods. From the religions of humans and the arguments they hold, plots have arisen and worlds were destroyed and rebuilt.Emotions, words and feelings come to life where I live and control is a little boy with sticky hands. Friends are angels and lovers are demons. Humans have strange powers and little hobgoblins stranger names.I believe in God, but see Him in such an different way that even those that call themselves kin, distance themselves and frown. There is no difference to me between light and darkness, both hold beauty and horror.I am currently busy with the second book in the Beautiful Deception series … once again the characters lead me, the worlds beckon me , and I just write. I have an idea , I see the words take shape and form themselves, it is a marvelous adventure and one I trust you will enjoy with me.

I have read about 180 pages or so and I have no idea what is happening. I went to the last of the book and found a list of the characters and discovered that each of the characters (of which there are 20 or more) is an emotion or stands for something else such as wisdom or the key but that didn't help either. I very rarely don't finish a book but this one I finally had to stop reading. The writing style is disjointed and the story is told from numerous points of view. Most of the time you have no idea whose viewpoint the narrative is coming from. It makes no sense. I'm truly sorry because I thought this was going to be an enjoyable read judging from the book synopsis given. Well that synopsis was the only part that made sense. I read 10 + books per week and I don't think I have ever read a book that I coulldn't figure out what was going on. I also have never written a bad review even if I didn't really care for the book. This book I just felt like I needed to give my feedback on. Sorry and good luck to the author. Maybe better next book?
The author clearly has an idea of what is going on, but the reader is not given much to work with. Mysterious characters that go unnamed and undefined, but get a whol chapter to themselves. A location, Ireland, but no time period given to help the reader with a frame of reference. I am over 150 pages in and I don't have much clue who is what and what the point of the story is. The author seems to be trying to convey the life of mystery of the characters, but ends up leaving the reader rather mystified. And top off the bizzarre and convoluted writingstyle, the author seems to have a poor grasp punctuation, though typos are at a minimum. I have no intention of finishing this book. Perhaps fans of the Mystery genre would enjoy the challenge of untangling all the knots.
