OUT of the NORM

When getting pregnant and being pregnant are both an equal struggle.

A ticking biological clock and aversion to physical touch are a cruel combination. Especially, when having a baby is all a woman can think of. But, a determined woman on a quest to motherhood is ready to do absolutely anything. 

Come on a journey of unexpected twists and turns in this emotional women’s fiction novel. This book is a testament to the resilience, perseverance, and the unwavering strength of a woman’s will and the obstacles she must overcome to achieve her dream.

Welcome to my world

I am a Czech Kiwi author living in New Zealand.

I am the author of several children’s picture and chapter books. Out of the norm is my first novel for adult audience.

When I’m not writing, you can find me scouring the stunning local beaches for shells, listening to bird song in the bush, and catching up on some well-deserved sleep. With two kids and two cats by my side, and a husband who all keep me busy, I’m never short on inspiration. What I am short on is time to put all the creative ideas spinning in my head on paper. If only I could clone myself.
