Michael Klerck


Michael Klerck was born on Robben Island, and grew up in Cape Town South Africa. He is the author of a number of textbooks for colleges, including one that has enjoyed one of the longest uninterrupted runs in South Africa.

He published a children’s fantasy novel called The Key To Tantalis, and in 2001 he won the coveted Mondi Paper Magazine Award for work in Men’s Health magazine.

He has just finished Lessons From The Sauna - a riotous romantic comedy that has people from both sides of the Atlantic crying with laughter. The comedic elements are beautifully counter-balanced with more moving accounts of his time in South Africa under apartheid.

He now lives in White Rock south of Vancouver, British Columbia.
