was born in Klerksdorp, a
mining town in the
North West Province of South Africa. After High
School I completed my Tertiary studies at the
Potchefstroom University, where I obtained a B.
A. Degree, as well as a Post-Graduate Diploma in
Education to become a teacher. While teaching, I
studied part-time and obtained an Honors Degree,
and later a Masters Degree in Afrikaans. When I
moved to Mafikeng from Klerksdorp, I completed a
Doctorate with a study on the Haiku in Afrikaans at
the University of North West. I recently retired after
being a teacher for 31 years.
Just before retiring I was diagnosed with Macular
Degeneration, which meant I could no longer
work as a teacher. And I was also diagnosed with
Psoriasis on my hands and feet, which meant that I
have to use a wheelchair most of the time. In spite
of these conditions I was determined to still do
something. Thats why I started writing. My motto in
life is: there are only two ways to go. Go down, or
go on. I made a decision to go on.
