OCCUPATION: STORYTELLER. MEDIUM: IMAGES & WORDS. GENRE: BEAUTY.

Discovering Leigh

If you cannot respect the rules, do not engage with the game.

When photographer Leigh McCabe has a void that needs to be filled, one that she did not even know she had until a chance meeting with Michael Marais.  Because the unassuming IT geek—known as ‘Just Mikey’ to his friends—transforms into ‘Sir Michael’ on Saturday nights when he practices his art of Shibari—Japanese rope bondage—in a nightclub at the dirty end of Johannesburg’s city centre.  Leigh is taken with the Work of Sir Michael, and asks him if he would be her tutor, a proposition which sees Leigh as Sir Michael’s consensual submissive.

In a journey that utilises his unusual talents, Leigh and Mikey engage in a friendship of mutual self-discovery which deepens each other’s understanding of themselves–and each other.

This is a very pleasant arrangement, until Mikey falls in love with his student, and Leigh needs to decide what she desires more:  the mind and heart of Sir Michael, or the exciting relationship with her bad-boy boyfriend, Wayne.  But when this choice is forcibly taken from her, someone will need to clean up the mess.

Raw, authentic, and erotic, Discovering Leigh is the most unusual of love stories that is not just about indulging in your fetishist desires; but about identity, truth, trust, lust, love, and betrayal, and if any of those words mean what Leigh thinks they mean.

Defining Giulia

A Darker Romance

Coming Soon – The sensational follow-up to Discovering Leigh

With her world torn apart, Leigh McCabe is just trying to adapt to the mundane task of just living life again.  Angry, confused and hurt by events of the recent past, she is wondering if she can love again.  Until eighteen-year-old wannabe-model Giulia Hoffmann enters her life, and gives her an unexpected but welcome counterpoint:  a woman’s touch, and the opportunity to be the dominant partner in a BDSM relationship.  But Giulia also asks a question Leigh does not want to face:  what about the man in her life, the one who carried her through the most traumatic part of her life?   Finding herself in a love triangle for the second time in her life, Leigh needs to choose, and what will the consequences of those choices be?

Giulia herself is lashing out at the world and trying to find her place in it, when she has to face a dilemma: stand on her own two feet without a support system mere months after leaving school, or rehome back to her native Germany.  This a prospect not even worth considering, especially now that Miss McCabe is adding some colour to her life.

However, circumstance removes the option of choosing, and both women have to accept the unpredicted outcome.  A situation that forces Leigh and Giulia to ask what love, lust, commitment, and ‘unconditional’ really means, and how to deal with the surprising answers.

Defining Giulia is a powerful tour de force: a contradictory of blend of imagination and authenticity which takes the reader on a harrowing journey of devotion, love and loss

Defining Giulia is expected end 2019

Goodreads

This book has excellent character development. The story line is immersive and whisks you to a world of BDSM. This story has a unique way to tantalize all the senses and visualise the scene taking place. This book had me laughing, angry, crying and the effects remained with me days later. The author has a unique attention to detail a definite read.

I found this book to be quite an unexpectedly ‘tender’ tale of a journey into the discovery of BDSM. I loved Gerry’s character portrayals and had the impression, from the beginning that he knew the people in the book personally. I must say that writing & publishing in your second language is challenging and there were quite a few typos in the book. However, this did not detract from the story, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This was at the same time a difficult read and yet unputdownable. Difficult, not in a bad way, but because there were times I had to digest it, give it great thought, challenge my own preconceptions and then move on. Human nature has always fascinated me and Gerry has gone a long way in opening up new perceptions to me in this book . If only we all, honestly, lived by those rules stipulated at the beginning of the book, hell, we’d be a way better species. I look forward to future writing from Gerry.

Coming from A strict Calvanistic, Religeous backround this book was supposed to be on my taboo list, but “Discovering Leigh” took me on a journey of self discovery, acceptance of others and an expansion of my mind about things that I never gave much thought to.

A must read for everyone who THINKS they know what BDSM is.
“Discovering Leigh” was not what I expected!

A MUST READ!
