If everything were to disappear from my life except my writing, I would still be happy. I write because the words come to me out of nowhere and take me to places I had not previously thought to go. Later on these words become books or blogs or simply stay there hidden on the paper where they have landed.

I write because I have to. I write because it keeps my fire alive and if I try to silence it, I feel I’m slowly dying inside. I write because the words that come to me want to be set free and I let them go where they need to be.

I let my energy flow out with them and pray that they go and find their own way. They go, but the energy I have set free with them comes back to me ten thousand times more powerful.

I WRITE BECAUSE I AM ALIVE.

Through Dust and Dreams

At a crossroads in her life, Roxana decides to take a ten-day safari trip to Africa. In Namibia, she meets a local guide who talks about “the courage to become who you are” and tells her that “the world belongs to those who dream”.

Her holiday over, Roxana still carries the spell of his words within her soul. Six months later she quits her job and searches for a way to fulfil an old dream: crossing Africa from north to south. Teaming up with Richard and Peter, two total strangers she meets over the internet, Roxana starts a journey that will take her and her companions from Morocco to Namibia, crossing deserts and war-torn countries and surviving threats from corrupt officials and tensions within their own group.

Through Dust and Dreams is the story of their journey: a story of courage and friendship, of daring to ask questions and search for answers, and of self-discovery on a long, dusty road south.

Our life is the stuff dreams are made of. Our stories are the archetypical stories of all mankind. There's no fiction. There’s no reality. There’s only one world and we are it. That’s what I like to write about: a world where dreams and reality blend and become one.
