(?1935- ) South African author, who lived and worked in colonial Kenya in the 1950s and 1960s, various countries in the Middle East afterwards and since 1972 in Rhodesia; now back in South Africa. He started writing during his assignment in Kenya, but his first book, novel The Yellow Mountain (1978) was published while in Rhodesia. A typical propagandist adventure fiction in favour of the white settlers' cause in Rhodesia, it is set in Kenya, Northern Africa and Rhodesia and deals with a new top-secret Rhodesian defence Invention. This will allow the building of a fence along the Rhodesian border which will effectively stop the incursions of all supposed enemies into the country.
After a quarter of a century he self-published new books, which have some fantasy elements. [JO]
