Pretoria, South Africa



I am a 33-year-old copywriter, journalist, cat owner, and a lover of running, naps and trashy television. I was born in Canada and moved to a small Afrikaans town in South Africa at age 10. I love waking up at the crack of dawn to read and write and my stories are all about the journeys of women who don’t fit into society’s norms and standards. A man will never be the hero of one of my stories, but the chivalrous may get a shout out.
