My Story

I was born on a warm summer day in the early hours just 2 days after Christmas. I spent my childhood keeping to myself having discovered reading and writing early.

After graduating high school with honours and achieving the Springbok Scout Award (Similar to Eagle scout), I ventured into the interesting and wonderous land of academia at the University of Witswatersrand where I received by Bachelors of Commerce.

A few short years passed by and my creative love of painting, drawing, writing short stories and poetry gave way to a successful career in business. Something was missing, so I signed up for a Bachelors of Arts specialising in Literature and Creative Writing at the University of South Africa.

By day I run a large division in a multinational African IT firm, by night I dream up world unimagined and put paper to pen to bring those stories alive.

Now, I balance being a senior leader in business, being a writer, being a church leader with my love of skateboarding, watching movies and television series, reading and writing.

The Coward is a gripping novel! It had me hooked on the first page. The development of the story is enthralling. I could not put it down.

This is a wonderful fantasy story based in a time a girl can enjoy. I love the journey, the adventure, our hero has to face throughout this book and couldn’t help but want to bury my nose into the pages. I felt like at times it could be slow and dragging, but it picked up just when you started to wonder if it ever would. So glad I read this book.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I am left feeling like I wish this was one of those epic trilogies! I?ve just got into the characters and the story and now it?s finished!

I really enjoyed this book, a bit of a slow start but worthwhile reading all the way to the end. And you?ll be left wishing there was more too
