Want to hear a story?

This is a true story about one girl’s broken heart.

It’s about breaking up……and breaking down.

About making new friends.

About the roller-coaster ride of a break up and all the funny little stories in between.

About the lies she had to tell, and the lies she wanted to tell.

But most importantly it is the story of surviving a broken heart.

Travel

I’ve been so very lucky in my life and travelled to some wonderful places.

My favourite beach has to be in Australia at Lake Mckenzie, Fraser Island.

Best holiday / vacation was to the Cook Islands.

Coolest city has to be Sydney (with London a very close second).

Most amazing weekend was in Las Vegas.

Perfect romantic break, definitely Santorini.

First class food: Italy.

Best place to relax: the Caribbean.

Most memorable meal was Dubai (Friday Brunch).

Amazing views: Thailand

Favourite wildlife is Africa, beyond doubt.

Best walking tours was New York.

Finest sunset I would say was Fiji.

Outstanding people: London.

I could go on….. BUT…..I guess there is no place like home :).

What about you? 🙂

“STORY OF A SECRET HEART,”

BY CASSI ELLEN

PUBLICATION: MARCH 28, 2016

secret-heartSynopsis: Story of a Secret Heart calls on the author’s own experiences to weave together a hilarious and thought-provoking dark romantic comedy.
However, be warned, this story is not for everyone! It is a very personal, brutally honest story, about love, life and laughter, told from the heart.

As Cassi, a 30-year old single woman leaves a long-term, unhappy relationship, she struggles with the pain and anguish of a broken heart. When, by chance, she meets a handsome stranger, he introduces her to a world that she didn’t even know existed: a very dark and dangerous world!

Happy New Year everyone :)!

Sorry for the lack of posts, I didn’t have a great end to 2016, but today I am back on it :). I hope everyone has a great Christmas / holiday / New Year (I did :)).

How is 2017 coming on for everyone? I just brought myself a car, so for me it has started out very well!

Whatever you are doing….. be happy!

All or nothing!

I absolutely love to get out in the countryside and go for a run or ride my bike. It’s one of my favourite things to do at the weekend.

This weekend however, I got all ready to go for a bike ride, went out to the garage to get my bike and I had lost the garage key! After 30 minutes of looking for the key, I gave up and sat on the sofa all afternoon, in my PJs, eating Nutella out of the jar :).

I am definitely an all or nothing kind of girl!

Story of a Secret Heart

I really like this review from a ‘top 500 reviewer’:). It has certainly made me question my marketing and the genre I ‘squeeze’ the book into.

Of Love & Order part 3: Right/Wrong Reasons To Be In A Relationship

A great article

What’s Your Motive?

There are all sorts of reasons why people get into relationships. To some degree the rush for marriage is as epidemic as the rate of divorce. One can say that people would love to be married just as badly and quickly as others want to end the marriage! It then just becomes a cycle. The sad reality is that the world has diminished the true value and purpose of love so much so that the covenant and bond that ties two heterosexual people together is flippantly regarded and acknowledged. Being married turns into a high school and college relationship where you are essentially “testing the waters,” you’re not sure if you really want to be with the person or if you are right for each other. Imagine? By marriage, you are still uncertain of your compatibility and your purpose for being together? It’s like…
