Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up outside the city of Durban, South Africa as a loner, spending most of my free time wandering about in the mountains and during holidays staying in my secret cave. At night, in the pitch dark I would watch the stars and wonder who was up there and if they would ever contact me. I started off by reading Cowboy books and then later graduated to Science Fiction, which hooked me for the rest of my life.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing short stories of Science Fiction when I was about 15 years old, but never attempted to have these stories published.
