I am a citizen of the Republic of
South Africa, a single mother, and an avid reader and writer. I have
had poetry published in the Poetry Institute of Africa’s Anthology:
Soulfully Seeking, have won awards in two English Olympiads and have
completed an Honours degree in Behavioural Genetics. I use this
scientific background as a basis for some of the concepts in my novels,
and as a means to control my invariably quirky characters, which often
enjoy giving me lip. I am highly connected on social networking sights
such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Goodreads, and WEbook, and
generally love to aid my fellow writers in their endeavours. All of this
may aid in marketing my novel.
I thank you for your time and
consideration, and look forward to hearing from you. The full manuscript
is available upon your request.
