About the Author

Lize Jacobs was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa, where she still resides. Although this is her first publication, she has been writing since she could remember, not knowing that being a writer was who she truly was.

She has worked in the video industry for many years; Producing, Directing, Filming, Editing, and Scriptwriting. But her love for film has allowed her to Produce, Direct and Write several acclaimed short films over the years. Privileged enough to have been able to travel overseas, to places like Alaska, Mexico, Tuscany, Munich, Paris and several African Countries, she has discovered a love for other cultures and the stories hidden in foreign locations.

She is passionate about the diversity and influence of dialogue and celebrates the art of story-telling across all genres.
Her aim is to keep publishing and write film scripts, telling stories which can linger in a person's souls for a little while, hopefully bringing some joy.

Story begins with Chrisna boarding a plane to Paris. And just how it begins, story slowly tumbles along at the start, moving in a sluggish pace, building interest little by little, before finally ascending to a high-flying leap. Chrisna has just gotten divorced, and she’s going to Paris to throw her ring off from the Eifel Tower. So this trip was her “divorce present.” Cool! I thought the whole idea of taking separate vacations as a “marital sabbatical” was an excellent idea. Most people should try that. “Never be afraid to be afraid of what you‘re afraid of. Embrace the fear, and release the crazy.” (19) But how much fun can you have in Paris in five days? Chrisna is definitely about to find out. Soulful, fun, and well-written, Lost in Chance is a story of taking risks and living life. Certain parts lagged here and there, which slowed the plot dramatically. I mean, if this was supposed to be a wild trip through the Parisian streets, then it should’ve read in a fast, non-stop way. Instead we spent too much time on trivial scenes detailing mundane tasks. Still, the message was there. Paris is definitely on my Must-Go list.
