About Corrie Lamprecht

Born and bred in the old South Africa during the month of Sagittarius in the year of 1956. Although I am fairly Sag; the Chinese sign of Monkey with Fire element is really more descriptive. Nowadays I am no more horse and arrow; I am proud to be from the family of Ophiuchus. In this modern time what better area to have in your sign than the centre our Galaxy and holding the Control over the Snake!

I live in Thailand where I had a yacht factory. My two sons are here with their families - hey I am the proud grandfather of none less than three grandsons and two grand daughters.

My one son has taken the Yacht Chandlery and turned it into a very big successful business. www.asap-marine.com

The other took over the yacht factory and turned that in a very big international acclaimed factory - www.bakricono.com.

My Ex is in South Africa with a new live in her heart and there my two daughters are still enjoying the Sunny South with rainbow colours. In South Africa this grandpa has a pretty little granddaughter too!

Now I am retired. Well, sort of. I am writing books, this is sometimes a 16 hour per day job doing research and getting the words typed into the computer. Soon I think I will start writing fiction. Sounds much easier than this non-fiction fact finding. Though I love the self education!
