Living in South Africa, I am a sexologist (now retired) specialising in abuse of women. In addition to my Master of Arts degree, I have 2 nursing diplomas and am at present preparing a dissertation on the phenomenology of Caring with a local university.
I have written 2 novels: Mitsein is about the journeys of 4 women into life from abuse and the effect they have on their therapist, and Cindi's Pendulum which is about the way a child helps her mother out of an abuse situation.
