About The Author
Born in Chesterfield, England. Immigrated with my family to South Africa and grew up in the sugar — cane fields of Zululand, on the wild north coast of the Indian Ocean. Restless, and uncomfortable with the South African political system under ‘Apartheid’, I emigrated to Canada, and pursued a career in Engineering. My 30 — year career improved my imagination; it was no great leap from the boardroom to fiction. In truth, this work started out as an autobiography: my adventures as a youth on the Zululand coast, but my imagination got the better of me and it quickly turned to fiction.
