I have worked as a journalist on newspapers in England, Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) and South Africa and also on magazines in Zimbabwe and South Africa.  My last full-time job was with the Daily News in Durban, and I still freelance for the paper. I do general news, human interest and business stories and have specialised in tourism stories in KZN. I have also written three military books,  The Elite, the Story of the Rhodesian Special Air Service, The Elite Pictorial  and Sabotage and Torture (about the sabotage of brand new Zimbabwe aircraft and the subsequent torture of top Zimbabwe Air Force officers).
