Born and raised in the Eastern Cape, I developed a love of reading before I was a teenager. My passion for story-telling was evidenced by my inventive mind and imaginative stories I used to tell my youngest brother. Reading encouraged me to write. I aim to write stories that matter to people and to write them in a language that presents a challenge to a young reader. It is my dream to encourage a culture of reading in my country because I have personally experienced the benefits of it.
