Where It Started

I started writing this novel a long time ago, back in the 1990's. This is a story from the early stages of democracy in South Africa and it took form at a very slow pace and with many interruptions over the past almost 20 years. Over the past year I have decided to finally make an effort to complete this personal project. It was not originally intended for publication however I have decided to flaunt this out there. More to complete the cycle, rather than expecting huge sales, however sales will of course be welcome once it is published, I trust by early 2017. It is a story about an average guy, like you and me who lands into unwanted trouble? Could it perhaps happen to you, or me?
