    My first novel "REVIVAL" was published in 2006 by the South African Short Story Publishing Association (SASSPA). In 2009 I won the Marion Scher award for pushing the boundaries of writing. My stories have appeared in 34th Parallel in California and Skive in Australia. My husband's name on GA is Corneles and he has a son.
