I was born in South Africa some fifty plus years ago, and lived there most of my life. I spent many years working in the mining industry, and lately have taken to teaching English in South Korea.
I am a widow of almost twenty years standing, and have two children, both well over twenty one.
I love rock and roll, hip hop, dance, reading, singing and life.

A short story collection that spans all the writing styles, genres and voices I like using. Venture into deep space, meet a dragon and a lawyer battling it out, think about how to live forever, take a trip to the Blue Mountains near Sydney and generally meet some characters and situations that may strike a chord.
