I have a passion for creatively recollecting bygone events, and take pride in producing professionally written books which resonate with the reader, while making for a pleasurable read.  The intention is to both honour and preserve the integrity of people, events and history.

My journalism career dates back to my qualifying and working as a High School English teacher in Johannesburg in the early 80s. I subsequently moved into the corporate world, where I wrote and edited product related articles. After moving to Cape Town and raising three children, I channelled my energies into furthering my personal and journalistic interests.

Much of my time was given to spearheading community upliftment projects, for which I wrote monthly newspaper articles. Many of my other stories have also been published in magazines and newspapers.

Having spent the last few years working with CEO’s, philanthropists, captains of industry, as well as several private families and individuals, I’ve gained extensive experience in documenting the past, along with recollecting intriguing tales from yesteryear. Upon request, I will show you samples of my work.
