Brief Bio
I have been an active paraglider pilot since 1992, and I'm a surfer and outdoor enthusiast. I've been a paragliding instructor since 1994 (SA) and qualified in the UK as well. I have close to 2000 hours and have flown over 100 different wings. I find it essential to get away from the office on the weekends, and I suppose you can't get further away than 2000m above the ground, looking down at a mountain peak.

My primary-school was artistic. We made up stories. We painted things. We acted out Norse Mythology. It was great, and it's probably the reason I'm a writer. I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 1994 (Bachelor of Commerce) but was bored to death by my first accounting job. I worked in the film industry, as a paragliding instructor, and as a photographer. I began writing, and found that I loved it.

I am a dedicated reader of fantasy, and respect the works of Stephen Donaldson, Robin Hobb, Robert Jordan and Terry Pratchett.
