Frederick J Smith


I am an Afrikaans writer living in Centurion Gauteng.I am a pensioner retired since 1991 after serving in the SANDF (AIR FORCE) for 26 years.I am married to a marvelous wife and have three beautiful daughters, two grand daughters and three grand sons, whom I love dearly. I am addicted to reading and writing, especially in the Afrikaans language, my mother tongue. I come from a large family of ten children and was raised in the Orange Free State, one of the provinces in the Republic of South Africa. The small town of Hennenman was my inspiration to become a writer one day....although many, many years later, my dream came true. I hope that the Afrikaans readers of my books will enjoy them as much as i enjoyed writing them......i'm convinced they will love them...! xxx

Mollie vestig saam met haar man en gesin op die familieplaas, Oasis in die Boland. Vasgevang in die natuurskoon, is sy salig onbewus van die diep, donker geheime wat in die plaas opgesluit lê… en waarvan sy die hoofteiken sou word van die bonatuurlike. Vele intriges en gebeure, waarvan talle onverklaarbaar is, eskaleer en bou op tot vreesaanjaende, dog verrassende hoogtepunte.
