Profile Information

I live in Africa where the Acacia trees spread their umbrella cannopies majestically on the African plain.  Where Lion and Zebra gather at the waterhole to drink in the midday heat. Where the tribes are real, and the smell of burnt maize permeates the air around the villages.  The bark of the Baobab tree is rough to the touch.  The moon at night is larger, and the stars, there are billions of them.

I have two dogs, one black, one white, and they bring me such joy, oh, and I have a special car...my toy, cos you see, I love everything gadgety.  

In 2006 my thriller called Revival was published.  In 2008 I was awarded the Marion Scher (South African journalist) award for Pushing the Boundaries in South African Writing. I have been published in California and Australia with various short stories, and looking for a home for my countless others. At the moment I am writing the movie script for Even Stars Die. 

I am an editor and agent and this is how I get to read your work:

1. Read mine

2. Leave a review of 100 words or longer

3. At the end of your review make a request for me to read your work

4. Paste a link 

So, this is how I get to read your work. Please don't solicit me to read your work if you haven't taken the time to read mine and leave a review.
