I am now a published author – hallelujah!!! My Love Affair with Nora!!!

I have been extremely quiet over the past few months, but for a reason!  I have fine-tuned and re-read and edited, and proof-read again my novella / autobiography / travelog on my mid-life adventure of joining 5 strangers, all Norwegians who live on the opposite side of the globe to me, on the Cape to Rio sailing race in January 2011.

The book explains my soul searching after two failed relationships straight after each other, following a 25 year marriage that ended in divorce.  At age 49, already starting to experience menopause, I took the bull by the horns, got my skipper’s ticket, and advertised to be crew on board a vessel  in the race.  A month later, I got my response from Norway!  And so started a story that simply has to be told.

Sharing such a confined space for weeks on end with 5 strangers included some love, some pain, anger, frustrations, joy and the ultimate prize was to rediscover who I actually am.

I trust you all go and read the book – it is short, sweet and concise. I have tried to tell it without writing with rose-tinted glasses on, and if I can encourage just one woman to go out and grab whatever life offers, I will be happy.  Thanks to all who encouraged me by telling me I CAN write!!!  So much appreciated!

Enjoy, the book is available on Amazon.com in 5 days’ time, or as per pic hereunder:


About suletta

Fell in love again at age 50! And followed my man to Zanzibar, for him to set up a dairy farm. I managed to travel into Africa a few times in my life, always loving it and experience the "fever" that grips you on African soil - the one that especially the Europeans now and in years gone by, suffer from. Except I am an African by birth - a South African. A Mzungu.So I discovered at this late stage in my life (not that I feel old!) that some people find my babblings about life interesting, and I quote: "live their lives vicariously through me".

    Now you need to make it an ebook on Kindle and give it a good price and you’ll sell lots of copies. Anything about sailing does well in an ebook format. From experience.
