I am a freelance journalist in South Africa, and have held various positions on a variety of publications: reporter, features writer and news editor at The Star, editor of Grocott’s Mail and deputy editor of Bicycling magazine. I've won awards for hard news journalism, feature writing and creative writing. I've written three books: The Victor Within; Spy: Uncovering Craig Williamson (chosen by the Sunday Times as one of the Top 10 books of 2017) and Betrayal: the Secret Lives of Apartheid Spies, which was published in 2019.
I'm also a budding podcaster. I have produced a number of series together, including Extraordinary Lives, A Tale of Two Epics, Marie Claire Talks and Amabookabooka. Amabookabooka, a novel podcast about books and the people who write
them, was featured in OkayAfrica's list: '7 South African Podcasts You Should Be Listening To'
