Yup, that's me right there.

I was born in South Africa and when I was five, we moved to Canada. Ever since that transatlantic migration, I had the travel bug. 

I really wanted to go into unchartered territories, make the maps and live an adventure story. But pretty much everything has been mapped out already. And as for exploring other planets… well, our spaceships aren’t up to that challenge yet.

So the next best thing was to write about those adventures. And that’s what I did. Through stories, I could go to the past or the future, and not just explore new lands, but create them.

I grew up, as kids usually do, and studied Civil Engineering, which has nothing to do with writing (generally speaking, engineers really can't write, unless it's a mathematical equation). 

In August 2000, my husband and I moved to Kenya, where our son and daughter were both born. So I guess my childhood wish to explore a planet was granted in a way, minus the spaceships.

But I still keep coming back to the adventures found in the pages of a book!

In addition to books, I've also started a weekly radio show! Africa Creates interviews African artists in order to showcase to the world all the talent on this amazing continent.
