Hazel’s memoir, Heaven Tempers the Wind: Story of a War Child was shortlisted in the Australia and New Zealand-wide CALEB Competition 2017.

Its sequel The Sides of Heaven was released in March 2018 by Armour Books.

Fear holds her a prisoner. Hope sets her free. She longs for freedom – then she dedicates her newly-won freedom to God!

Her short stories have won in various competitions and have been published in several anthologies.

Hazel’s books will be available for sale at the discounted price of $20 each.
