Overview
‘She had it all planned in her mind and this would be her secret only; no-one needed to know. She would simply tell everyone that she was going away on a three-week holiday.’ Named by her grandmother, Angel is different from other girls.

‘She had it all planned in her mind and this would be her secret only; no-one needed to know. She would simply tell everyone that she was going away on a three-week holiday.’ Named by her grandmother, Angel is different from other girls.

With her plain looks and poor background, she feels like an outsider – and wonders whether she’ll ever be a ‘woman of substance’ to be loved and admired. When she embarks on a whimsical secret project,

little does she know that it will take her on a rollercoaster journey that brings her face to face with who she is… and nothing will ever be the same again.

Gillian Van der Walt

My love for writing started at an early age – probably around 7 or 8 years old where I would write poems for my mom and my teachers. Those days there were no emails or cell phones and I had 15 pen-pals by the age of 13. My mom would always find me in my room, pen in hand and music in the background. My love for poetry grew and as an adult, I decided to turn it into a hobby. I wrote short magazine articles in my spare time. A few were published and I enjoyed partaking in a few competitions too. I found this to be the perfect opportunity to write my first book – on real life events and trauma that took place. I poured my soul into my book.

The response from the public was phenomenal and it is at that moment that I found my true calling in life: to be an author. Not only did I love every minute of writing it but it brought me great joy to see how I had touched people’s lives with inspiration – the “writer’s” bug had bitten. That is when the “Angel” trilogy was born. The story came to me overnight and the plotting of it was at the most bizarre of places e.g. stopping at traffic lights or waiting in the car for my children to finish school or at a doctor’s room, I would pull out pen and paper and jot down thoughts, words, ideas. It was not until we went on holiday for a week in July that I got totally inspired in the Drakensburg mountains and that is where my writing took place, in the peace and tranquility. Most nights when writing, I would only fall asleep after midnight but it doesn’t exhaust me, if anything, it is therapeutic
