About me

Introduction I was born in Kadoma, Zimbabwe, in 1974. I spent most of my childhood in and around Bulawayo, leaving in 1993 to go to the UK. In all, I spent about seven years there, working first of all, and then going to college and university. In 2000, I spent a year in Singapore, lecturing on the University of London's Degree Programme. A year later, I returned to Zimbabwe, where I spent the next eight years working as an English teacher. In 2008, I moved to Ndola in Zambia, where I still live with my partner, John, and our two daughters, Sian and Ellie. I've had a number of short stories published in various anthologies of Zimbabwean writing, and in 2009, my first novel, This September Sun, was published in Zimbabwe by amaBooks. This September Sun won the Zimbabwe Publishers Best First Book Award in 2010 and was published in the UK in March 2012 by Parthian. In May 2012, it reached number 1 on Amazon Kindle sales. I am currently working on my next novel, which I think is best described as a philosophical detective story!
