I discovered Medical Romance when:
I was at boarding school. I’d been punished for some offense or other—I was a bit of wild child rebel—and had been excluded from a movie outing. One of the older girls gave me a medical romance to read to keep me busy as I was the only kid in the hostel at the time. Do you know how creepy those places are at night?
I wrote my first story when:
As soon as I could write. I’ve always had an active imagination and used to spend hours in my head with fantasy characters and plotting all kinds of wild improbable adventures.
Where do you live?
I live in South Africa with my two human daughters and one canine daughter.
My best trait is:
My sense of humor. I keep my colleagues in stitches but often get into trouble from people who don’t know me because they don’t understand my humor. It’s pretty irreverent so I can understand if I offend people occasionally. That’s okay too because some people are easily offended by anything. My teenage daughters sometimes think I’m ‘random’ – whatever that is.
My worst trait is:
I’m HUGELY impatient with stupidity. I can’t take it in any form—especially people on the road. I’m pretty vocal about idiots on the road.
Five things on your bucket list:
I want to take my daughters to see the Aurora Borealis.
Stay at home and write full time.
Meet Janet Evanovich.
Spend an entire summer on a Caribbean island.
Buy a dishwasher – don’t know where I’ll put it but I’m sick of doing dishes.
