AN INTRODUCTION TO MY BOOKS
Although each of my novels is a complete story in itself, the series follows the life of Tom Owen and his family from the early 1820 English Settlers in the Eastern Cape of South Africa to the present day. The first story is set in the Cape, the Transkei, the Karoo, the Transvaal, Natal and Swaziland. In the second book our hero moves to Rhodesia, Malawi, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. The third book is set in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
BOOK 1 - 'BAREFEET & PAPERTHORNS'
This story is about the adventures of Tom and his companion, Temba, as they grow up during difficult times on a remote farm in the Transvaal, and their teenage years in Swaziland when they grow into young men and learn to hunt wild animals and fall in love. During this time they come in contact with violent men who become a real threat to both young men.
BOOK 2 - 'BLACK MAMBA WHITE SETTLER'
The story continues when Tom moves to Rhodesia and joins the British South Africa Police. He becomes involved in the 'Bush War' as the country struggles for independence. Tom and his black companion Lucas, cross paths with Mamba, a terrorist leader. During this time Tom suffers a personal loss. Some years after independence, when Tom is farming in what is now called Zimbabwe, he is caught up in the country's land reforms, and the struggle for survival continues.
BOOK 3 - 'MPISI and the GOLDEN HORN' (DIAMONDS & HORNS)
Tom and his family decide to start a deep-sea fishing business in Mozambique, and cross paths with a ruthless individual who is involved in 'dirty' diamond dealing and Rhino horn poaching operations. The villain will stop at nothing to prevent interference in his illegal businesses. What must they do to stop this man.
I support 'UNITE AGAINST POACHING' and through the sale of my books I hope to promote interest in the plight of our wildlife in Africa.
PLEASE - we need your help to stop senseless killing of our animals
