I am an English Literature and Film Studies post-graduate born and bred in South Africa.
I spent my teenage years playing guitar and bass in a couple of alternative band but have always wanted to become a writer. I enjoy both reading and writing speculative fiction – that is everything from YA Science Fiction to Urban Fantasy, High Fantasy, and all its sub-genres.
You’ll often find me on social media talking about writing when I should be writing, or posting pictures of Thor, Loki and Monster (my cats) and my nephew who thinks he’s a ninja turtle. The rest of the time I’m most likely reading YA fiction or staring at a computer screen thinking about that chapter that I was supposed to write last week while on Pinterest or Tumblr doing ‘research’ but really pinning inspirational quotes and sharing cat memes.
I have a special place in my heart for South African alternative music as well as South African authors and I try my best to show my support in these communities.
One day, when I’m all grown up, I will lecture English at one of Cape Town’s universities.
