A Johannesburg-based copywriter and copy-editor, I have finally decided to spend more time on my fiction. You'll eventually find a range of genres under my name - from horror to humour, drama to futuristic.
My purpose is to bend and shape words into mirrors that reflect meaning back into the world. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, painting on commission, or trying to play the piano.
Describe your desk
My desk resembles an old-style school desk, with a slanted top that opens up, and even a circular cut-out where my ink pot is supposed to go (although that's where I hide all of my laptop cabling). My desk also has 2 shelves attached to it where I keep my writing reference books and my binder. That binder keeps me productive - if I don't write, I have nothing to bind ;)
When did you first start writing?
I first started "writing" when I was about four years old. Since I was teaching myself the mechanics of writing, I wrote everything in capital letters, and because I had no idea that I should just separate words with spaces, I drew forward slashes between the words to indicate spaces. Crafty.
