After studying law at the University of the Western Cape, I graduated and went to work as an attorney at a law firm called Michalsons.
But, perhaps the most interesting thing about me is that I am quite a keen writer. I have known since 2008, in grade 11, when we were asked what our long-term goals were, that I want to write and publish a full-length novel. At first, I didn’t fully understand what it would require of me. But through my own research and through FunDza’s help, I achieved that goal when Cover2Cover published my first novel, Taking Chances, in 2016. Writing is now a bigger part of my life now than it’s ever been before. Even my work as an attorney challenges me to think and write a lot.
When it comes to what inspires me, I think what I’ve gone through in my life inspires me in a lot of ways. The difficulties and achievements I’ve had all inspire me to keep going, to only view life as an adventure, a ride we should all be mounting ourselves on.
I watch movies, series, the lives of people around me, and cricket. I play video games, cook and bake a little bit. But, most importantly, I’m always trying to come up with the next idea that’ll allow me to tell a good story. I write to entertain, to share my life’s story and to hopefully have a positive effect on the lives of my readers. I believe that if I can help someone smile, think, discover life’s truths, I’ve achieved my goal as a writer.
