About Erna Buber-deVilliers

I am a retired high school art teacher, with a bit of time, at last, to pursue my many and diverse interests. I hope to get those books that are inside me out. One of them is a kind of auto-biography-with-family-history (I think). My research for that one led me to translate Tlou! Tlou! - the first of my writings published on Smashwords.
