I’m a writer and yoga teacher living in Johannesburg. I taught myself to read at the age of four and haven’t put down a book since. This passion for the written word led to a long career in journalism. Yoga entered my life when I was working for The Sunday Times Magazine in London and I immediately found it a soothing antidote to the fast-paced and competitive world I was working in. I loved the way it could get me out of my frazzled, over-thinking mind and into my body. In fact, I loved it so much that many years later I decided to teach it. These days, I continue to write as a freelancer for magazines, I teach yoga online and I'm working on my second novel. I'm also a full time mum to two gorgeous boys.
