    • The best  part of blogging in 2017 was getting personal messages in my email from readers who discovered my stories.  I can’t begin to express how exciting that gets, and I felt truly happy.  Getting fiction out there is hard work, and it was good to get such positive feedback from readers.

Art Adventures at the Hotel Waterbuck-Nakuru

 

It feels like it’s been a while since I went on a road trip, so this was incredibly fun.  Nothing on the mind, but being on the road, noting random things, lush green scenery and that family of zebras, having their lunch.

 

Nakuru was rainy when we got there, so our contact sent us a tuk tuk man.  I now believe everyone should have Mr. Ngugi when you first hit Nakuru.  He got us around town and answered a billion questions with patience.

We had a stress free transport time thanks to him.

The trip was a fun day out, but it was also for a conference, organized by Topserve Baking Accessories and supplies, who have relaunched their shop in Nakuru.  The Conference was held at Hotel Waterbuck, Nakuru.  While the event continued, it was hard to ignore these gems on the walls of this hotel.  So much art, there is no chance you will be bored checking in to this hotel.

All that and a Cup of Coffee

Nakuru is about 3hrs away from Nairobi.  Very quiet, very laid back, and definitely a lot of fun to be had.  New Goals after this trip –> Not to take everything too seriously, gotta take time to have fun.

Check out Hotel Waterbuck next time you’re in Nakuru.  If not to stay overnight, then to eat, at their delish restaurant.

Koya’s Choice – e-Book

koyas-choiceKoya’s Choice

Description

Koya took a risk on love when she was in college, and the man she gave her heart broke it, sending her a terrible letter that left her broken.  Eight years later, Koya has shut out the idea of love, and focuses on building her business and a comfortable life, never once entertaining the idea of love.  Until the day her best friend tells her that the man who broke her heart is back in town.  Anger brews, and the urge to scratch Charlie’s eyes out, when Koya finally meets him again, is hard to ignore.

Charlie Dhali has loved Koya as long as he can remember.  When he returns to Nairobi after eight years, he discovers a new world.  One without Koya’s love, and his best friend might have taken his place at her side.

Can these two lost souls find their way back to each other, under the hot Nairobi sun?
