“It’s difficult to classify myself solely as a writer of romance, when in fact writing about women’s lives, and the complexities that has gone into making her that woman, entails a great deal more than romance.”

Next Book Out September 24th 2020

Love Again

Runner up in the Saga Literary Prize

Swimming with Fishes

It may seem as though I’m relaxing & taking in one of the last few days of the British summer sun, but in fact I’m out with three small children, got my eyes on them as they run riot, I mean freely around the park. I’m looking forward to the coming weeks, publication count down to my novel, Love Again & planning the online launch. I can promise you something a little different 😉 #publication #countdown #romancebooks #romancenovel #loveagain #booklaunch #launchingabook #launch #authorlife #weekahead #familytime #family #twentyin2020 T-shirt by Afrique Collectz. ...

I’m this way . . . On purpose. Flawed.

Rise in love & Power, King, @chadwickboseman - 2020, for all of us has been traumatic in some way. I too have lost my love in 2020, that ultimate devastation that comes with losing your companion, your bestie, no more new memories to be had, it’s insurmountable at times. My heart goes out to the family & friends 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 #devastated #riseinpower #blackpanther #star #tooyoung #liveon #chadwickboseman ...

He did it & I’m sharing more pics to prove it. My Wash-belly (last born) tied the knot with his Love, his bestie, his heart 💓 beat. As a mother of four boys, I have been introduced to different cultures, fallen in love with some amazing women who loves my sons, and I have had my world & my knowledge expanded in a way I couldn’t have envisaged, which gives me as a writer, interesting & unique materials😅
My message to the newlyweds, happy couple; Never lie, steal or cheat. But if you must lie, then lie in each other’s arms, & if you must steal, then steal each other’s hearts, & if you must cheat, then cheat negativity & hold on to love. #mamasadvice #happycouple #love #lovedup #lifetogether #godslove #amazingwomen #married #marriedlife #mamaslove #lifeisgood #writers #authors #twentyin2020

The last time I saw this dude was in Ghana, in 1995 - how time flies. We ran into each other at the Emancipation Day event & forgot about social distancing for a moment for the pic. The event was largely peaceful & from what I saw, most people had a positive experience.

Hope you can see this - a small cluster of crystals, a gift from my editor, so I know signs are real - so thoughtful of her. She knows of my heartache, but let me not linger on it. I know life doesn’t always turn out how you plan it, just sometimes it turns out better. #life #lifeisgood #grateful #gratitude #crystals #healing #writing #reading #andthistooshallpass #twentyin2020authors #rashedaashantimalcolm #bestrong ...

My Sunday morning, I got invaded. 😂😂😂 You’ll have all read at one time, that my Sundays are lock-away writing days where I enjoy spending time with my super-power - my Writing. With my second novel now with the printers, my third coming along nicely and with a new & different writing project on the horizon, I count my blessings, which includes spending time with the grandchildren & being a #twentyin2020author

Encouraging reading books verses watching television, iPads or iPhones has been one of my challenges with my grandchildren. So when they come chill with me, we get into a routine of reading, reviewing (they tell me all about the story, what they liked the most & their favourite characters). When they watch their favourite programme, I get them to review it in the same way. It’s all about balancing. #geniuskids #bookloving #kidslovebooks #reading #readingtime #readforme #readforlife #myangels ...

First man I ever loved, who loved me back with unconditional love. You are missing from me, Daddy, you taught me that no matter who I love in life, I’ve got to love me more. You taught me not to get upset over people’s negative opinions of me, because it really isn’t my business what people think. You were my educator, my protector, and my childhood best friend, playing skipping with me, buying me my first bike, buying me a kitten, Topsy, so I could take care of her & understand responsibility, giving me weekly pocket money to introduce me to weekly budgeting, which I spent on comics & Toffees in a day, & still you topped me up daily. You told the second man I loved, the father of my four children, to love me, take care of me & for us to always respect each other, so our children would grow healthy values, morals & principles. You inspired my creativity, gave me my love of literature from your many stories about life in Jamaica - listening to radio dramas by your feet - how I miss you, my darling Daddy. #daddy #daddysgirl #daddydaughter #fathersday #fathers #firstmaniloved #firstmanilovedwasmydad #protector #childhoodfriend #writersofinstagram #authors #childhoodmemories #ilovemydaddy #neverforgotten ...

Lockdown has produced some creative talents. My granddaughters decided to produce their own talk show, The Ava & Aaliyah’s Show. They started by telling me they want to interview me about my book. #child #girlboss #journalists #broadcastjournalism #chatshow #talkshow #creative #creativegirls #author #rashedaashantimalcolm #writers #proudglammy ...

Covid-19 has changed a lot of things & the way we do things.This is me in the middle of a telephone meeting, outside in the sun, leaning against my car & my son takes the pictures, saying ‘this is the new normal after lockdown.’ I can live with this, there’s a kind of freeness & freedom that comes with it. I like.

Lockdown has meant more time spent writing & with family & I am thoroughly grateful for that time. It has been sad, because we lost a beloved to cancer, but the children have been equipping us with laughter. Jacob sees the white fluffy clouds in the sky & it registers candy to him - he wants a ladder to climb up to the clouds so he can get some of the candy 😂 I’m never short of creative ideas when children are around 🤣🤣🤣 #children #grandson #cloudsinthesky #candy #childsplay #childsimagination #creativethinking #writerslife ...
