My thanks go to fellow author Magdel Roets from South Africa. I appreciate her time and care.
Her review said …’Polly White leaves us with the hope that there is always a way out and that turning back to the Lord God, trusting Him and leaving everything in His capable hands, is the way to total restoration. What If I Go is a story that has a distinct warning and a message of joy awaiting on the other side of trouble.’

We are enjoying a heat wave! Paddling pools and hose pipes out for slippy slides are essential. I got this henna tattoo on my foot to celebrate. Take a book to the festival for when you’re exhausted from dancing. Glastonbury is this weekend. Yay!
Sun cream and plenty of water to drink, too. Have fun in the sun:)
I found this on Pinterest and agree whole heartily with the creator.
I am grateful for your time to help me spread the word on keeping safe. Please encourage summer reading for students. They matter. I wrote What If I Go? as a heads up on the signs of grooming and violent controlling behaviour. Let’s help stop the perpetrators?
After a stormy start the sun is shining on my novel. I am very happy to have had some valuable coverage on The Story Reading Ape’s Blog. Chris has been most generous to include me as his guest author. Authors, join me on this sociable book site? See my inclusion over the bank holiday, below-
Chris has made it easier for me to raise awareness of actual crime happening on the UK’s streets. Let’s disrupt the predatory grooming of young women by empowering them to spot the signs. I appreciate your help. See what I mean in local paper this weekend-
Readers, try downloading a book that Chris is promoting?
This short story mirrors my own, What If I Go? It is suitable for a younger audience if you find my novel too challenging this will more subtly warn young adults onward of the dangers of taking hard drugs.
It also raises awareness of the sensitive topic of sexual exploitation within a short story.
The book is called ‘The Bigger Fish’ by Magdel Roets see
I highly recommend this empowering quick read. Happy Reading!
I’ve given up nibbling chocolate for Lent. It’s so difficult…Losing weight could be a bonus?
If I use the time to write rather than snacking, I could be more productive. The shops are full of beautifully decorated Easter eggs to tempt me. Don’t worry, I’ve still made choc chip cookies for my family. I suppose that’s what a personal sacrifice is all about. Actually, craving a sweet thing is a small price to pay.
Enjoy your confectionery!
You can still read all about it here:
