Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

LIAR by Kwezi Fairfoot

Date: 16th February 2010

LIAR by Kwezi Fairfoot

Kwezi is a friend of mine whom I met in the UK back in the early 80's. She was born and brought up in Kwa-Zulu Natal.  Kwezi is the Zulu name given to her by her Nanny - it means 'Morning Star'. She speaks Zulu and it was this ability which saved her life when she was attacked by burglars at her Guest House in the Midlands of Natal.

Kwezi is clairvoyant and really does have an uncanny ability - although not when it comes to her own life as is so often the case with people who have a gift.  I first met her in Bristol when I was, not for the first time, going through a turbulent time.  She told me things that no-one else other than myself could possibly have known and she gave me hope.    Kwezi never charged anyone for the benefit of her 'gift'.  I always took her presents or gave her something to recompense her but she has never capitalized on her gift and for that I respect her.

Kwezi is a very bad correspondent (I asked if I could tell you this) and when she left the UK and went back to Durban in South Africa, keeping tabs on her was very difficult as she rarely writes and usually forgets to give you her telephone number.  When my much beloved husband left me for another woman in 1995, I flew out to Durban and into Kwezi's comforting arms.  She warned me that this man would keep coming back into my life - and she was correct.  She will always be there for you when you do track her down. She's like a fire-fly burning bright in your life one minute and then disappearing.

Fortunately I can usually track her down through her sister who lives in the UK.  I phoned a couple of weeks ago and discovered that Kwezi was in the UK and actually staying with her sister.  She will talk to you as though you had a conversation yesterday yet by my reckoning it's a couple of years since we've spoken.  She told me she'd had a book published - Kwezi - an author! I couldn't believe she would have sat down long enough to write a book.  But she has and I purchased it from Amazon.  It is a most unusual story and I could hardly put it down.  Also, I couldn't even attempt to tell you about the storyline, without giving away the plot.

So if you can get hold of LIAR and like an unusual story, then this is for you and, for heaven's sake, don't go peeking at the end until you get there.  (There are a few typos and one or two errors but it doesn't lessen one's enjoyment of a thoroughly good read.)

Kwesi tells me she has written several other novels but it's very hard to get books published.  It's amazing isn't it, the bookshops are crammed to the gunwhales with books of every description and yet authors always tell you how difficult it is to get published.

Well, dearest Kwezi I hope this little piece will get you some more sales and more importantly a publisher for your next book.
