During lockdown, I had my mum, Karren Hodgkins, guest blog here and the statistics show visitors enjoyed her book reviews as much as I do. I’ve invited to be a regular contributor here and so, here is a little more about her and her book tastes!

I am an entrepreneur having started a marketing consultancy in 1995 focusing on developing and championing marketing in small and medium privately-owned businesses.

Strategy and brand story creation are my passion. I love to create the architecture and the structure behind the implementation to ensure it has the most impact, best aligns with the vision for the brand and eloquently communicates to the target market.

I love to read, to immerse myself in new ideas, to learn, to grow. Information transforms into insights which help with perspective. So exciting!

I love to relax by reading cozy mystery novels. Whether its an Agatha Christie (Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple are favourites) or something a little more modern, being engrossed in a story that engages my brain is just so enjoyable!

My home and garden (in Hilton, South Africa) are a gift from God and I am always looking at ways to improve what is already beautiful.  A budget, or boundary, engages the imagination.

My family, colleagues and friends (and that includes my fur family) mean everything to me. They contribute to my personal growth and leadership journey. Making a difference in their lives brings me great joy and fulfilment. I say prayers of gratitude every single day. I am truly blessed.
