I am an anaesthesiologist who has morphed into author and freelance writer. I have always enjoyed writing, but it was only when I retired from a hectic life in hi-tech medicine that I was able to take it seriously. I have had articles published in Joy! Magazine, (a national Christian mag), Your Family, SA Country Life and the Weekend Argus magazine section and my articles in the Faithwriter’s Challenge have been placed first in both Intermediate and Advanced sections. I also write a regular article for our church mag. to create awareness of justice issues, which are close to my heart.
I grew up in Zimbabwe, but trained in medicine at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and specialised in anaesthetics at Groote Schuur Hospital. Most of my professional career was in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and in the United Arab Emirates, where I was Head of Department at Tawam Hospital, Al Ain.
I now live in Howick, KwazuluNatal with Dorelle, my wife.
I have written two other books about to be published. Prayer, Medicine and Miracles is much like God in the iCU, but also with a differeent slant and Crisis in the Children’s Ward is a novel about a young doctor in a rural hospital where children are dying unexpectedly.
Meantime I am enjoying writing short stories which you can find at Faithwriters.com
