women’s rights

I am an Unbound Author ..

Absolutely thrilled to announce that I have signed to Unbound for my novel, Blood On The Banana Leaf.  Unbound are a literary crowdfunding platform and publisher so once the book is funded – IT WILL BE PUBLISHED!  They also have a distribution deal with Penguin Random House which is a real kicker.

The book explores the lives of four very different women in Singapore and one of the main themes is maid abuse and trafficking.

By pledging for this book, not only will you receive some lovely rewards BUT you will also be making history because this is the only novel that brings this particular issue to light.

Your name will be in the back of the book (or the front if you are feeling uber generous) and kittens everywhere will stop crying.  🙂

So here is the link …

Please pledge if you can.

Thank you so much,

Warning to Frau. Merkel

Oh! Fraulein Merkel,

What shall you do?

You wanted a multicultural land

To erase away taboo.


It hasn’t worked, it will not work

The Volk are very cross

Women are fearful in the streets

The politicians don’t give a toss


Misogyny and sex assault

Thievery and rape as well

Poor old Deutschland is looking bad

How can we resolve this ill?


Muslim does not mean fanatic

We all know that and agree

But we need to know that we’re safe to walk

Down streets that once were free.


You’ve opened us up like a can of Kraut

To this and that and more

Its only matter of time, Frau M

Before violent crime will soar.


You’ve already censored the TV stations,

Now Radio is close behind

Police refuse to write reports

So afraid of being seen as unkind


We have fought too hard for centuries

to win our rights for freedom

And not to cover our hair or legs

or give up the vote for women


Close the borders? Weed out the bad?

Rip up their papers? Send them back?

All of these or none of these but something must be done

Or every woman in the land will own a Taser gun.
