I worked in the formal education sector for sixteen years before leaving to freelance in 2000.
I began writing while consulting for the Gauteng Institute of Curriculum Development. Then I started writing, editing, compiling and project managing for a range of publishers.
I’ve mainly written textbooks for schools in the Languages and Life Orientation Learning Areas. I've also edited a number of non-fiction books for children as well as fiction for children and young adults.
