I am a leap year Aquarian from South Africa who likes to jump off the page, onto the stage, and into the airy heights of your imagination as a body of words. I write quirky science fiction and fantasy adventures with a twist of lemon; and poetry with a pinch of salt. I retired from a performing arts career when the SARS coronavirus epidemic ended a sold-out Cats World Tour in Shanghai, China, in 2003. My love of the stage influences my work as a creative artist, a teacher, a poet, and a writer living in central Taiwan since 2003. I continue to sing and dance and act with words one step at a time by creating a body of words one day at a time.
