Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in rural South Africa - before the Internet was invented - where you had to walk to either the town library, or make sure that you found the school library open. If not one of these, then you were without something to read. That prompts you to write stories for yourself. That I think is where my desire to write unique stories was born.
When did you first start writing?
High school. I was amazed by some of the books that I was able to read - Sir Laurens Jan van der Post, CBE (13 December 1906 – 16 December 1996) was one of the persons that could describe a scene in such vivid detail that you could smell the grass, feel the wind on your skin. Wow, how could you read something like that and not try to emulate it? That is where I started to write.

Is it only through heartbreak that we can appreciate joy?
