    I am a full-time busy body, and part-time imagination conjurer. I live on the amazing Eyre Peninsula, having moved here from my hometown in New Zealand. My family consists of my adorable and patient husband, two rampant boys and too many pets to mention. I have a wonderful set of amazing writers who support me in the form of Eyre Writers, and in return I offer crowd control services for the Youth section who are the future best-selling authors. I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them down for you all. www.vktritschler.com

    Hello, I’m Telene. One day I woke up and decided to embark on a walk into the spiritual wilderness….leaving behind the world of sensible shoes, ironing boards and all sense of who and what I’m supposed to be. I decided to let it all go and simply Create A Space: A Space for Authenticity A Space for Awakening A Space for the Light to enter….. Thank you so much for joining me.

    I love reading and I love writing. I have always found books to be a source of relation, surprise, adventure and information. It gives me immense satisfaction to share the books I read with you on my website in the hope you will find they give you the same pleasure they gave me. Click onto Dionie's YA Reading and see what has caught my interest.  As a writer I want to help other writers, especially those just beginning on their journey to becoming an author. Of course not everyone wants to be an author, but just enjoy the craft of writing and that is fine. Look under Snippets for Writers you never know there might be something just for you. I currently have two books released both through Finch Books in the UK. The Scorpions Heart Book 1 in the series The Abrasaxon's Daughter. A Fantasy with a quest. Book 2 will be following soon. Either before or after you have read the book visit Brianna's World  and explore her world. My second book is a contemporary coming of age novel  Finding the Upside of Down . This novel explores the issue of bullying, teenage suicide and finding hope. I was bullied both as a child and an adult. It makes me angry. Visit Helpful Links i f you are being bullied.  My blog for readers will be an eclectic mix of issues I find interesting and that might interest you. Have a look.
