My Story

I am a South African independent author, poet and former male model (okay that last one might be a lie).

I started writing Awakening when I was 17, in my Senior year of High School. Since then, I've branched out into poetry as well.

As you may have noticed, I'm not doing this to make money. All of my books are free, and shall remain that way. In the far future, I might think about changing that, but for now, you can enjoy my stories for the low low price of nothing at all.

I am entirely self-taught and self-funded, handling everything from editing and cover design to marketing and formatting by myself.

The stories and poems I write are primarily written for my own sake. I feel it necessary to get them out of my head and onto the page, otherwise I could die (possibly).  

If you like what you see, go ahead and leave a favourable review at your favourite retailer. If you don't, feel free to print out my picture and use it as a dartboard.
