My blog is moving

After ten years of being hosted by Bookslive, I’ve finally taken the plunge and merged my blog with my website

In 2007, then editor Ben Williams sent me an email inviting me to start a blog at his new website, which soon became the hub of the South-AfricanĀ online literary community. I had just published my first novel, and knew absolutely no-one. Bookslive (then, quickly changed that. I made fast friends with resident bloggers, many of whom remain some of my closest friends. At the first Bookslive meet-up, I met many more faces that would become more than familiar over the years. Its been a wild and wonderful ten years, and I can’t imagine growing as a writer without this site.

So why the move?

I’ve been neglecting my website over the years. It hadn’t been updated in the last four years because frankly, it was built in such a way that I didn’t know how. All my news, musings and reviews went straight on to my blog and Twitter.

I’ve finally redone my website on a platform I can update on my own, and merged it with a blog so everything is in one central place. It’s not quite 100% finished (I’ve commissioned a designer to create an awesome header image for me), but will be in the next week or two.

You can find me at

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
