Disclaimer: I really wanted to keep the connection between my Son's latest novel and my family as quiet as possible, as it is quite a scandalous shocker, but as you can see from VICKI's comments/review below, that's clearly not going to happen now. I am naturally proud of my son's awesome accomplishment in writing this novel, the sequel of which is being readied for publication as I write this blog post. Any other pride I may have had has long since been knocked out of me through what life has thrown my way - and anyone who has read this book knows that I'm not saying that lightly. Anyone reading this novel will quickly realize why I would have preferred to keep the link to me and my family a secret, but if not, by the time the sequel is done, there should really be little doubt as to why I would have preferred that to be the case - It's downright embarrassing having had a mother like Snow-White! So life has managed to keep this introvert quite humble, as anyone who has emailed or chatted with me will confirm, and in any case, in the end I think it's better to be that way - humble, that is. We are what we are because of our life's script for the most part, and because of what God has done for us - and what "that other guy" has thrown our way to complicate life. How (and if) we rise above those complications is really key to survival. I hope these books will inspire their readers to rise above their own circumstances and any cruel, undeserved and unwelcome challenges imposed on them and their families by others. Some may view these books as revenge ... no, just simple long-overdue justice for all the "queen's" victims - some of whom paid the ultimate price.

It's no secret anymore! My youngest son, Jonathan, has written a romance/mystery/thriller based on my family's story. It follows the real story 90% accurately - though Jonathan has taken liberties with conversations and minor details, but he does so very well. Here are excerpts below of what a couple of people wrote:

VICKY, in her review, blew my "rather delicate" cover, and as we cannot remove her review from, I've just had to "come clean". Here is VICKI's detective work: "I feel like a reporter for the national inquirer or something. When I ordered Jennifer Eloff's low-carb books back in January I noticed a new novel with an interesting title listed alongside them on as well. On a hunch I ordered the novel -- and what a find! Not only is it exactly the kind of romance novel I like to read, it is also a scandalous thriller with a plot worthy of any Agatha Christie murder-mystery. Except this novel is based on a true story. Given that Jennifer's surname is very unusual, I googled ELOFF and soon realized that it is very South African --- as, it turns out, is Jennifer originally. From reading her blogpost of October 28th it is quickly apparent THAT THE AUTHOR IS HER SON! This all starts to make sense as he would have had the necessary access to inside information in order to write this novel, and believe me - you cannot make up a story like this, it's way too unusual. That leaves a few more mysteries, but one in particular. If the author is her son, then who is she in the book? There are really only two good candidates -- Denise who is a striking blonde with green eyes, and Elizabeth who has brown hair and blue eyes. Looking at her photos in her website and on the backs of her books, the answer is almost certainly that JENNIFER ELOFF IS DENISE in this novel. Just as well since anyone having a mother like the unfortunate Elizabeth definitely would have a very heavy burden to bear throughout life. Based on this novel I would have to say that Elizabeth has deservedly earned her place in literary history as `Africa's Snow-white' -- and her mother is definitely as sinister as the queen in that old fairytale. This novel is appropriately named. But this means that somehow Denise and Elizabeth meet and become friends, as how else would Denise know so much about Elizabeth's life to be able to relate the story to her son? My suspicion is that Nicholas, their mutual love-interest, somehow is responsible for them meeting. I can't wait to read about that. Believe me when I tell you that this book is the kind of novel that is very rare now days and it is tough to put down once started. I really just cannot wait for the sequel. This young author is truly gifted. I MUST know how it all ends!!! If anyone else has any insights into Jennifer's life growing up in Africa, please share."

COMMENT: Vicky is mistaken; see if you can figure out who is who.
