NEW RELEASE: Amelia The Mother book #3 (Amelia series)

QUOTE BY AMELIA: ‘Journey through life with conviction…’


It is release day for Amelia The Mother… For all fans of Amelia’s Story and Amelia’s Destiny, you will have followed Amelia’s arduous journey through her life. You will have cried with her and laughed with her. Now in her forties, Amelia is a mother and she uses her past as an example of ‘How not to parent.’

Amelia has suffered two great losses in her life in recent times, losses that test her strength and devastate her completely. In her usual candid manner, Amelia weaves her emotions like never before, baring her soul with such honesty you cannot help but feel the impact of her every word.

It is often said that real life is stranger than fiction – how true this is… Unlike fiction, true stories don’t always offer the resolution people want to hear. Not all things can be fixed and not all mysteries can be solved, however, Amelia has fought hard and searched hard to find many answers to unsolved mysteries in her life and many have been answered in book #3.

While I contemplate my journey thus far, I wrap my hand around my hug mug and sip my coffee… I think about my younger-self and wish I could go back in time and whisper in her ear, ” Everything is going to be alright, Amelia. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other no matter how hard things get.” A moment of sadness envelopes me, while a loan tear trails down my cheek… I brush it away and compose myself. I have many moments like this, moments where my inner thought journeys back to the past and reminds me of how lucky I am. If only my younger-self knew that there was happiness at the end of her grey rainbow. I tell myself that some people, myself included, experience challenging times in their lives that test us beyond our permitted boundaries of reason. That reason is not clear at the time. The only thing that is clear is the long climb ahead.

My beautiful daughter, Lilliah, is growing fast! Sometimes, I wish I could stop the world for a moment and climb off, just to catch my breath and take it all in…

“Well, I figured as we would not get to spend our first Christmas together, I thought it was only fair to bring it forward!” Joshua took Angelina by the hand and led her up the creaky wooden steps. He unlocked the thick wooden door and stood aside to let Angelina walk in first.
As they entered, Angelina gasped. “Oh wow! This is so beautiful, Joshua.”
Joshua closed the door behind them and Angelina walked around the lodge with her mouth agape. The log fire was burning and the heat warmed up the lodge. There was a smaller Christmas tree to the left of the fire and two presents already wrapped, sitting pretty and just begging to be opened. Joshua went straight to the fridge, pulled out a bottle of chilled champagne and grabbed two glasses before turning to Angelina.
“I wanted it to be special. I hope it’s not too much for you? I just wanted to make sure you miss me while I’m away!”
Angelina turned to Joshua, “This is perfect. Oddly enough, I was thinking earlier how much I was going to miss not spending Christmas with you… I love it. All of it. You’ve made me feel like the luckiest woman in the world! Now, are you going to crack open that champagne?”
“Stand back, I have no idea how the champagne was handled before it reached the lodge!”
The cork flew with a bang. Angelina almost jumped out of her skin and Joshua laughed while pouring them a large glass each. They sat down in front of the open fire, watching the burning flames and listening to the crackling wood. Joshua’s large arms wrapped loosely around Angelina and she had never felt more complete in her entire life.

An excerpt – Love In Times of War Boxed set…

We can go pick out a Christmas Tree…

“Hey girl, how are you? I miss you.” Tammy spoke into her phone. She was reclining in Danny’s chair, taking a few moments to call Molly before the guys came back from Stateside.
“Oh, Tam, I miss you, too. How are you?”
Tammy closed her eyes, “I’m good.” Sighing softly, she opened her eyes and looked out the window across the fresh snow on the front yard.
“That isn’t the sound of someone who’s fine. I need to know what’s going on.”
Tammy proceeded to tell Molly about the video. Danny. Danny’s friends, and everything that’d happened recently. Molly shared her life with Ryder and that they were moving in together.
“Oh, Molly, that’s fantastic. We need to get together; maybe we can go pick out a Christmas Tree next Saturday. We’d like to get one put up right after Thanksgiving and that’s next week already.”
“Wait. We?” Molly smiled as she watched a movie play on the television, the sound turned down.
“Danny and I are moving in together. Actually, I’m moving in with him.”
The two friends shared their lives as they were now. Talking to Molly had always soothed Tammy’s nerves. No one was more level-headed than Molly.

COME BACK TO ME… A War Poem by D.G. Torrens


A kiss goodbye, maybe our last

A thought I conceal each day you’re away

I wake in the night with fear in my heart

Praying to God you will return one day.


Your letter reached me intact

A treasure worth more than gold

As I read your words, I feel their impact

My beautiful soldier, brave and bold.


On operations, you are right now

Making a difference to other’s lives

My love for you is eternal,  I vow

Keep sending your letters, on these,  I thrive.


My nights are cold without you

Take care and come back to me

For I will be waiting, my love is true

From the chains of war, you’ll  soon be free.
