Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!

Here we are at the end of another challenging and uncertain year, but I hope everyone achieved something that they strived for. I completed a long-overdue screenplay for Catsville and I hope the New Year sees the animated version come alive. Hold onto your writing ambitions and keep working away on your manuscripts.
I have been commissioned to write a biography about an Italian immigrant who made it as a successful singer in Australia. This should keep me busy for the better part of 2022 as there is a lot of research and interviews involved in the process.

Reviews for “Written In The Stars”

“Written In The Stars” has attracted many happy readers who have left great reviews on Amazon, which are available for you to read. It has been an unsettled year but I’m pleased to announce that I finally completed the screenplay for “Catsville” in October 2021 and I’m in the process of finding an animation production company in Australia. Here’s hoping 2022 will be a great year for everyone. Enjoy the festive season and stay safe.

Surviving isolation

Remember how often we complain we don’t have enough time to do all the things we want to do in life? This is a perfect time to make use of every minute of our enforced isolation to fulfill some of those dreams and goals on our wish list. Adversity brings out the best and worst in us, but I am positive that the majority will choose to be the best and do the right thing. We will get through this dark period and the light will shine through as certainly as all storms must come to an end.

New Release!

It has been a while since my last post, but I have a very good reason for the prolonged silence as I have been busy completing my latest novel, “Written in the Stars” which took me almost twelve months to finish. And here is the Press Release to announce my book, which I hope you will enjoy reading.

MELBOURNE, Australia – Nalini de Sielvie announces release
of “Written in the Stars” the story of a young girl’s incredible courage
against all odds to achieve her dreams and success as she rises from rags to riches that inspires and
empowers women of all ages.
Anusha’s life changes dramatically when she is orphaned at 8 years old and spends the next few years as
a servant. Abducted from her village in Sri Lanka one day, she is forced into child labor but escapes soon
after, only to be captured by people smugglers. Anusha ends up at a detention center on Christmas Island
along with a few surviving refugees when the smugglers are ship-wrecked in Australian waters and she is
sent to Western Australia where she grows up to be a beautiful young girl. Her unusual beauty though
attracts the attention of a much-married, older mining-magnate who is determined to marry her.
However, her life is in danger as the millionaire’s family resent his beautiful young wife and plot to get rid of her.
“This story has adventure, romance, suspense, humanitarian issues that most people care about, and is

abduction and slavery, people smugglers who still try to enter Australia illegally with their cargoes of
‘Boat People.’ The plight of refugees held in detention centers in Australia. The problems facing new
migrants trying to settle in a new country and migrant adolescent issues, such as racism and bullying in
schools,” de Sielvie says.
When asked what she wants readers to take away from this book, she answers, “An inspirational message of empowerment that nothing is impossible in life if you believe in yourself and work towards your goals no matter what challenges you face.”
