Gary Odendaal


Working as a Data Analyst, Senior Data Analyst, Senior Data Integrity Analyst and Report Writer during the last 9 years I was able to gain insight into the minds of many different people in the Finance, Health Care and VAT Industry. My experience in these industries interacting with all levels of management, running projects and working with different management styles I have learned to read what works and what does not work. My passion in life has always been service and writing and it is for that reason that I have left the corporate world, given up the comfort and high salary and have gone back to an entry level position in a hotel in Dubai. Here i get to make other people happy on a daily basis which is all that I want in life. My passion in writing and training also comes from the desire to serve. I want to write books and essays that will help people to develop their careers and lives to living to the fullest!

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I do not remember the first story I heard but I do remember the first large book that I read. I read Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets when i was in the 4th grade. The book had the biggest impact on my life; I was that kid that was always bullied in school. I hid in the corner of the library and read books from that day forward. The harry potter books had such a huge impact on my life that I decided to keep a permanent reminder and have the deathly hallows symbol tattooed on my neck.
How do you approach cover design?
People always say never judge a book by its cover, it is impossible not to. I like to make my cover designs relevant to the name and topic I am covering but also to make it something eye catching and attractive.
