I’m a theoretical novelist in Joburg. Theoretical because there is a massive chasm between my skills and my standards. But I’m working on lowering my standards!
In the past I was a medical doctor and maybe in the future I’ll be a school teacher or a vegetarian. I spend a lot of time on reddit, web comics and outdated pulps.
When I was a kid my parents would take me to the public library on Saturday afternoons. The science fiction paperbacks were on the lowest shelves. That’s how things began.
