I was born in Johannesburg South Africa in 1965. Was raised in a preacher’s home where my folks served the Lord with a passion. They lay a strong foundation for my siblings and me. Later in life I studied 3D animation and have since created the Toby the Big Little Tugboat Book and TV series. I currently live in a small coastal village on the Southern tip of the Continent of Africa.
How did it come about that you first start writing?
I studied 3D animation and as a pet project I made a little Tugboat in 3D, soon after that I made the sea and harbor. I then added a few characters and buildings which looked quite cute. Once I finished the entire scene I didn't know what to do next so I wrote a story. A publisher offered me a deal and the rest is history. I never intended to write for a living. It kind of just started.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I grew up in a Preachers house and always knew what it meant to serve the Lord. As I began to follow the Lord on my own path I found the the road to living effectively for Him is not an easy one. There are certain things that we as children of God need to do in order to get the right guidance along the way. I was one of those that became frustrated when things would not work out and I could not see or hear any direction. What I didn't realize at the time was that the lack of "hearing" was due to me having sin in my life. When I eventually came back to the Lord by discovering how these things work on my own. I came to realize that I was not the only one that struggled with staying on the path. The Holy Spirit led me to write The Judas Effect in order to help others on their' walk along the way to breakthrough living in the Kingdom of God.
