I am an entrepreneur and former restauranteur who has  been in love with words all my life. As a teenager, when I wasn't working as a model and dancer, I had my own column in our city newspaper, and later worked on some non-fiction writing projects.  But short fiction is my great love and I am currently working on a collection of short stories inspired by my childhood in South Africa during the apartheid regime. There are important stories from that dark period in South Africa's history  that should be told, and I hope my short story collection will cast a light on the events of that time. My collection is dedicated to Nelson Mandela, my one true hero.
