Born and raised in South Africa, I have now settled in the Eastern Cape with my family and dogs. A hopeless addict of the paper and pen, I write most of the day, dividing my time between writing ebooks and articles.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The fact that it is an escape hatch. Writing and creating a story makes a person, both author and reader, temporarily forget about real-world troubles and go on an adventure. It never ceases to amaze me when I create a new place, character or even a planet. Writing means building with words to create a world, as real as possible, to make it believable and it is that creative process that I love the most.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. My readers keep me grounded with their feedback and suggestions.
