About Chris de Villiers

Chris de Villiers is an electronics engineer by profession, technically retired but self-employed in order to earn a living. While doing his military service in 1968 he developed an interest in solo adventure, which, for him, meant long backpacking trips, sometimes with other people but mostly alone, which he preferred. Later he became an avid mountain biker, not in a competitive sense, but as an adventurer.

Chris has a passion for writing, of which he admits that he has done too little, but hopes to develop to a higher level. He lives on a quiet, out-of-the-way farm in the Western Cape with his two dogs. Besides writing and solo adventure, his interests include photography, cooking, reading, astronomy, science and technology.
