My early years were spent in a small town in the then Northern Rhodesia wondering the wilds pretty much untended with my younger brother. Game was still plentiful including at one time, man eating Lions. My dad was very much of the old pioneer spirit, when we first moved out to what was then a very new town called Itimpi we collected water from the local river had no electricity. I was probably 9 or 10 when that area was electrified and running water arrived in the house . The town grew along with us, we made do in a world far removed from what most people knew.
I was educated in boarding schools in South Africa a far cry from what I’d been used to and I may add I hated every moment of it so was never a good scholar and very much a rebel, - my heart was always in the wilds much further north. My folks tried to get me to study further, in fact I spent 18 months getting a “higher education” before rebelling and hitch-hiking out of there to start a new life with little more than pennies in my pocket.
I have turned my hand to many things in very many parts of the world, always working for somebody else, while I was in Swaziland running a branch for a Swedish company I finally took the leap and headed out on my own- for the last 30 years I have run and lived off my own businesses.
This my first book has taken me all of 2 ½ years to write, It has been a really enjoyable experience, all I hope is that you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
