Hi and welcome to my site. This is me learning to take selfies:
I was born in southern Africa, in one of the smallest countries, Swaziland. If you want to learn more about it, check the page on Eswatini.
I went to three schools: Piggs Peak Primary, St Mark’s Primary both in Swaziland, and St Mary’s DSG in Pretoria.
Thereafter a pot pourri of life education, from local design at Swazi Flame to a secretary in the programme office the South African Broadcasting Service.
Along the way managed an ATCL in speech and drama with Benedicta Bonaccorsi in Johannesburg, learnt about the history of literature from the indomitable Howard Thomas, mime from the inimitable Richard Daneel, then home to the press room of the Swaziland Broadcasting Service for on the hop training.
From radio, to television, to print media, to giving it all up to pander to the husband of the day, raise two gorgeous sons, until 2012 when I fled the mundane to start writing seriously.
In 2014 joined a painting group and found a new creative outlet. Best unwind being covered in paint, or charcoal, and watch what emerges on the page or canvas in front of me.
I’m a Christian. Tried hard not to be, but God had other plans. Committed to following Jesus Christ in 1979. Baptised in the Holy Spirit six months later. Been an interesting journey and on the biblical 40 years am excited about what lies ahead.ian walk, my journey through the landmines of abuse and witchcraft and good and evil
