Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in East London, South Africa. My mother raised my younger brother and I alone, due to a messy divorce which left the other six children with my father in a different town. We were really poor, often only eating bread and coffee for supper. There was never money for "gadgets" or toys, so i quickly developed a passion for writing, which allowed me to transport myself into other people's exciting lives.
When did you first start writing?
I was around 14 to 15 years old when I started writing seriously. I was a bookworm with a wild imagination, so the move from reader to writer was bound to happen sooner or later.
