I was born in South Africa in 1979 and discovered my love for writing twenty-three years later. I find it very easy to create good characters, because each one of them is created using a part of me. As a child, it was hard settling down and making friends, because we moved around a lot. When I am not writing, I am enjoying fine pencil art - something I have been doing since I was seven years old, and spending time with my beautiful family.
I live in Fish Hoek with my wife, Melanie, and Tyler – our son.

19 years ago, a little Star was born with autumn leaves surrounded around her and a scorpion tattoo on her hand. A faint sound of turkeys gobbling around the time she was born and the berlin wall had once fallen on the month and day she was conceived. As she reaches out to the world, she is hushed and told to be silent but now with her words, little by little people began to hear her heart sobbing with pain and agony as well as love and friendship.
