Hi there. A warm welcome to the About Me page of my site.
Many of you know of my passion for our planet. I write about it, and I try to capture its wonders through the wildlife and landscape photographs that I take.
For as long as I can remember I have loved reading books and studying nature. Growing up on a farm in South Africa meant that I was always out and about, up to mischief somewhere. My imagination flourished and ran wild as I spent my childhood sitting in trees, climbing on rooftops, fishing in our local dam and bird watching from one of the hides that I built.
My love of our natural world developed in those early years and my passion for all things wild meant that my reading, writing, and photography would inevitably follow that path.
Now, many years later, I am moving ahead with writing and photography on a more serious basis. I hope my passion for conservation and environmental issues will make some small contribution to opening people’s eyes to the beauty and fragility of our planet. I intend to use this blog as one of a few platforms to share my creative content, and the content of others who share my passions.
The first major environmental piece of work that I am working on is the Kyle Gibbs series. A dystopian series set in a climate changed world, which is a topic very close to my heart.
My second series, the Hudson Drake series, is an eco-thriller series of novellas, which tackles wildlife trafficking, deforestation, and corporate greed. All this ties in with my goal of writing novels and short stories that span the action/adventure/ thriller genres, with a special focus on the environment and our planet.
I invite you to take this journey with me and look forward to chatting with you as we go.
Write well and safe travels.
