A Bit About Me
I am a full-time busy body and part-time imagination conjurer. I live on the amazing Eyre Peninsula, having moved here from my hometown in New Zealand. My family consists of my adorable and patient husband, two rampant boys and too many pets to mention.
I have a wonderful set of amazing writers who support me in the form of Eyre Writers, and in return, I offer crowd control services for the Youth section who are the future best-selling authors.
I hope you enjoy my books as much as I have enjoyed writing them down for you all.
The Secret Life of Sarah Meads
What do you get when you mix a frustrated working mother, an absentee husband, a handsome stranger, and a psychotic work colleague?
Sarah Meads was about to find out.
The hardest part was going to be keeping it quiet.
Well, that...and keeping her sanity.
Join Sarah in this hilarious tale when she catches the eye of the handsome and mysterious gypsy Antonio at the local school fete in Adelaide and decides to bring a little excitement back into her life. But all magic comes at a cost, and hers might be the biggest cost of all.
Supremely well written; walking side-by-side with Sarah is relatable, funny, and poignant. How does a woman juggle her many roles? What does her partner see after many years of marriage, and take advantage of when he is able? How can Sarah balance children and a career? This story will “hit home” with many readers. But more importantly, ask you the questions that you may have been secretly asking yourself. I highly suggest for a book club pick - just make sure you have plenty of wine on hand!
I really, really enjoyed THE SECRET LIFE OF SARAH MEADS. It is a debut novel for V.K. Tritschler and I can’t wait until she writes another one – well she has – it is being edited now. I love it when I connect with the characters in a book. The storyline covers some pretty heavy stuff; bullying, mental health, family relationships to name but a few. But the way it is written allows you to understand what is happening without descending into the pits of despair.
Good storyline. Characters are interesting and fun. It’s a really good start for a first novel. Looking forward to read more.
The Secret Life of Sarah Meads is a touching and entertaining read.
The characters are well developed and likable. The storyline is well written and captivating, with humour, family, life lessons, Sarah coming to terms with her life, and how her choices affect others around her.
I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.
Fans of Bridget Jones are in for a treat with this story of a stale marriage that goes painfully--and hilariously--awry. Sarah Meads is married, working mum, but life hasn't been as well, happy as what it should be. Enter the meddling Antonio who wants to give Sarah a push for his own reasons and what follows is a journey of self-discovery and letting go.
This was a fun refreshing tale, written by a South Australian author. It's not afraid to send up contemporary family life and the story is all the better for it.
“There are four things I need you to always remember alright?"
"Sure," she said.
"One, always breathe," he replied. "It sounds simple but breathing is sometimes the hardest thing in the world. If you're ever struggling, stop, and take a couple of deep, slow breaths. Count them out loud if you need to. Two, always have dreams and ideals and never let anyone tell you it's impossible. Something impossible is only something possible that hasn't yet been done. Three, get out of bed every single day. Especially if you don't want to. Because yes, even without you the world keeps turning, it's simply a little more interesting with you in it. Four, never give up. That means on life and yourself.”
