Jan Viljoen

Biography

I'm an Afrikaans speaking South African, living in the eastern region of the country near the Mozambican border. I'm a radio news editor, and write fiction and short stories as a hobby. I like to travel off-road in Mozambique, Namibia and Botswana. My other serious hobby is photography (check my pics at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mapaza). Im married with one wife and 3 children, one still in school. We have 5 dogs, 7 cats, 4 geese, rabbits (the number differs weekly!)2 parrots and one fish. I write mainly in Afrikaans, and hope all the thousands of Afrikaans speaking south Africans in the US, Europe, Australia etc will download my books for the kids to refresh their Afrikaans. All my works are being translated in English as well.
