I was born in Cape Town, South Africa but now call Canada home. I love the old hard boiled detective novels of Dashiel Hammett and Raymond Chandler, but they never wrote enough so I decided to write my own :)
With my literary fiction I'm trying to write stories that resonate with the human condition. But more than that, I hope to add something the written canon that helps to uplift the human potential.
I love the greats; Hemingway, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald and I love the poets too, especially Dylan Thomas and Walt Whitman. Other writers I enjoy include Chuck Palahniuk, J M Coetzee and K. Sello Duiker.
A healthy body creates a healthy mind that can write creatively. A lot of mine when not writing is spent running, working out or playing squash.
I live with 6 other sentient beings, 4 of whom are furry felines who seem to run the place. Not well, but they put up with us. I love to hear from my readers so please write to me!

This story manages to accomplish a lot with very little. The dialogue is realistic. I like stories that are heavy on the dialogue, and it's a setup that works well for flash fiction. The writer manages to build a real sense of danger quickly, and the ending was subtle and effective.
