Her name is Evangeline and she is Nephilim.

Evie belongs to the Brotherhood Irin and together with all the other Nephilim of the world she is protector to humanity, protector against evil. But evil has found its way into the Brotherhood. Someone has murdered her guardian and Marcellus, the New Master makes demands of the warriors that go against all they stand for. Demands Evie just can’t carry out.

Evie uncovers Marcellus’ plan to collect a set of special seals, but when a high-level demon reveals the truth behind the Seals of Hades, Evie know there is no way she can allow the Master of the Irin to get his hands on them. But will keeping the Seals from Marcellus cause her to sacrifice more that she should? Will vengeance for her guardian’s death be enough or will she need more to satisfy her Immortal soul?



The hand at her throat didn’t allow her to defend herself. Or speak in her defense. So drastic action was required or she would be dead before she got any information from her captor.
Evie shut her eyes and concentrated.

A fullness spread along her back. Her shoulder-blades rose and pressed against the skin of her back as her wings poked through the glamored slits in her upper back. In an instant, both Evie and Baa’ruk were enveloped by a pair of shimmering white and silver wings. Foot-long feathers sent wisps of silvery white dust floating around them.

She had hoped for a strong reaction. Perhaps the fear of God? Or maybe shocked, awed reverence. Certainly not an ear-shattering fit of sneezing.

The Head Demon now stood, hands over his nose, mouth slightly open, eyes scrunched up in silent expectation of the next bout of ground-shaking sneezes. Little blades of grass peeked out from between the flagstones, shivering in the wake of the thunderous sneezes.

Evie flapped her wings, which was unavoidable when folding them up behind her, and in a blink, both magnificent silver-tipped wings were gone.

Of course, she felt bad that she’d now started another fit of sneezes with a second breeze of wing dust. And of course, the whole thing wasn’t really that funny especially when she’d so recently almost met her maker. But Evie couldn’t help it. The first giggle that escaped her was tentative, mild. The next second she was having a full-blown giggle-fest.


I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practise given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each other’s loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.


We’ve also got a great interview with T.G…

Who is your favorite author?

I don’t have a favourite. I think I have read and loved too many books in my lifetime to be able to pick just one. Those that I simply adored usually appealed to me for different reasons. So no, no absolute favourite.

How do you describe your writing style?

I’m not sure if its a proper description but I like to think of my writing style as rhythmic. When I read I like a certain rhythm to the prose. Long flowing sentence or short sharp ratchety ones. I think that even words can be musical to read.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?

I you want to escape to another world for a while, to experience myths and legends and things that go bump in the night then my stories will appeal to you.

Have any of your characters been modelled after yourself?

I don’t know. Maybe? I haven’t really thought about it only because the charcter ‘speaks’ to me already there. I’m more of a conduit rather than a creator. Yup, the voices in my hear are real.

If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why?

Evie from RETRIBUTION cos she has the coolest most badass white wings!

What books have most influenced your life?
Anne Rice, Stephen King, Dean Koontz & Tolkien 

If you could select one book that you could rewrite and add your own unique twist on, which book would that be and why?

I’m not sure I would do that. Each author creates their own tome from their own creativity.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

The Beatles more so because I’m more familiar with their songs. Although I do love Daydream Believer!

Who should play you in a film of your life?
I pick Dilshad Vadsaria from the Revenge series.
