I’m a writer and poet, living in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Elsewhere on this site, you can read some of my work and find out more about my blog and podcast. My love of foreign languages, literature, travel and landscape infiltrate all my work and I’ve spent a lot of time over the past years working with literature set in deserts. (That would explain all the dune pictures, right? Yes, those are my tracks in the photo up there, sitting on top of a dune in the Sahara Desert.)

I’ve lived in places as different from one another as Stuttgart and Mtunzini – and it shows in my writing. I enjoy writing fiction and poetry featuring landscapes, travel and food and I have a few writing irons in the fire right now –  including a bi-lingual poetry anthology and a comical Afrikaans novel.

You’ll hear more about this soon, just follow this blog.

Ek is ‘n skrywer en digter van die Klein Karoo, wat tans in Stellenbosch woon. Lees van my skryfwerk op van die ander bladsye, waar jy ook meer kan uitvind oor my blog en podcast My liefde vir vreemde tale, letterkunde en landskappe loop sterk deur al die werk wat ek doen. Ek het die afgelope paar jaar veral heeltwat tyd met woestynletterkunde deurgebring. Dit sou verklaar hoekom ek so baie foto’s van duine het, nê? (Ja, dis my spore in die foto daarbo, op ‘n duin in die Sahara.)

Stuttgart en Mtunzini is twee van die uiteenlopende plekke waar ek al gewoon het – en dit het beslis ‘n afdruk op my skryfwerk gelaat. Ek geniet dit om fiksie en gedigte te skryf oor oor landskappe, reis en kos en ek het op die oomblik ‘n paar skryf-ysters in die vuur – onder andere ‘n tweetalige digbundel en ‘n humoristiese Afrikaanse roman.  

Volg maar hierdie blog, binnekort sal jy meer te hore kom.
