Author has written 12 stories for Romance, Fantasy, Love, Religion, Family, Life, General, and General.

I am a twenty-three year old South African. My long-term goal is to be a development economist. Currently, I'm completing my Masters degree in the United Kingdom.

Heart of the Driechtnacht - Despite the fact that most of this is in fact drafted, I am temporarily putting it on hiatus. I have become aware of numerous problems in the draft that I simply do not have the time to correct at the moment. The story and characters are still very close to my heart and I do hope to come back to work on this piece again.

If you are hunting around for reviews or looking for a place to cut your teeth giving concrit, I recommend the Review Game. It's fun and as there are wide variety of people in this forum, you may discover a writer with whom you see eye-to-eye. Just read the "Read this First!" topic before you take part the first time.

For your interest, my blog is available here. It's a bit of a mixture but mostly to do with my reading habits.

Favourite Fantasy Authors: Trudi Canavan (the Black Magician trilogy), Alison Croggon (the Pellinor series)

Favourite non-Fantasy Authors: Karen Joy Fowler (the Jane Austen Book Club), Tracy Chevalier (Girl with a Pearl Earring, the Virgin Blue, the Lady and the Unicorn)

Book I would recommend: "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger
