• I worked in the formal South African education sector for 16 years before leaving to freelance in 2000. Since then I’ve been writing, editing, compiling and project managing for a range of publishers. I’ve had numerous English and Life Orientation textbooks published for schools. I’ve also edited non-fiction and fiction for children and young adults.

    I’ve written three children’s stories which were illustrated by Joan Rankin and published by Jacana Media in 2011. I’ve written a story for 9-12 year olds which I’m hoping to have published and I’m working on a YA novel.  

    I’m Assistant Regional Adviser for SCBWI in South Africa and organise events in Gauteng.
