About Yolanda

I love writing stories whether from my own ideas or other people's (when they ask me.) Screenplays, documentaries, novels... anything (except poetry if I can avoid it.) My favourite genres are action, fantasy and adventure. Usually not comedy or musicals but I have edited a few and my sitcom is in pre-production. Other projects include a Historical Action Drama about a South African hero from 1773 (plus a documentary about him.) I am the head writer for a Christian talk show for which I've been writing since 2009. In my spare time I try to finish my numerous novels. And, of course, I love reading. As well as running Writers' Guild of South Africa workshops in my city and organizing social evenings for writers and film makers. My zen is my horse, Makita, who has a unique story of her own. And I'm married to the love of my life, Johann.

Unique traits: Smile and enthusiasm
