GRIPPING DARK AUSTRALIAN STORY
In the distance a man watches her
Perfect she stands on the beach
Wavelets lapping at her feet
He desires her, he will charm her
She will come with him like others
Where are those others now?
She goes with him, travelling to distant places
They walk all alone in a land of bright sunlight
She sees not the shadows hiding in the dark
Awful secrets emerge - she knows she must escape.
But she is trapped with him in the middle of nowhere.
Her hands and feet are tied. She is a captive.
He is taking her to a place of huge crocodiles.
She fears she will vanish inside them forever!
How could it have come to this?
Reader Review – From Idyll to Nightmare
Highly recommend. Storyline begs to be read
And characters you’ll never forget. Wonderful
Australian backdrop is the icing on the cake
A deserted mansion perches on a steep hillside, overlooking a rocky canyon. Tattered curtains hang behind broken windows, and a turret stretches toward the sky. Three years ago the owner disappeared suddenly, leaving behind a house full of secrets: A mysterious note, tantalizing clues, a hidden floor, one piece of a treasure map, and a missing fortune in diamonds.
Armed with her detective kit, and with the support of her BFF, Alexa, and a team of secret agents, Skylar Robbins embarks on a new and dangerous mission. Can she outwit a gang of older bullies and find the hidden jewels before they do? Or will the perils of middle school--like battling ruthless rival Emelyn Peters--get in her way?
Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Hidden Jewels is an Amazon #1 Bestseller in Children's Detective Books, was voted Book-of-the-Month by LASR readers, won a 5-star Reader's Favorite award, and was a Top Ten Finalist for an Author Academy Award in the YA/Middle Grade category.

The book is mainly a poetry collection that have been written in support for Mr. Johnny Depp. Through my poems, I simply commented on my point of view about the emotional journey that Mr. Depp went through during and after the trial. The poems are mainly displaying my point of view and they apply to a lot of people as they are mainly displaying human emotions that anyone could go through.
