‘BROKEN BASKET’ is the simple story of two young schoolgirls Thandi and Zanele, on the threshold of sexual self-discovery. When their relationship becomes more than just two friends sharing jokes or swopping homework, their secret is discovered with tragic consequences.
The book paints a dark picture of communities which fail to accept the reality of humankind and consider homosexuality to be a crime. When the ugly face of discrimination becomes the judge, the freedom to live one’s own truth is fatally compromised.
The world is ending. People, animals, plants – there is a universal dying-off of the planet. Rumours persist of a reprieve but none appears. Two dogs and their human companions bond, as they trace a vivid circuit in a region not dissimilar to Cape Town; they encounter the violence and decay as they travel, struggling to survive. It’s a tough passage through societies of degradation and unsettled by a war beyond the mountains that encircle them.

Where will the feather end up?
Selwyn and Robert replaced, Squary Wary and Roundy Boundy, who were the original characters. Because of circumstances they became Selwyn and Robert. The author felt it was appropriate to change the images in order to fit in with the new characters. As in the story "Selwyn and Robert learn a Secret on the Farm", the pixies help them again, but in a different way. This time they help them to find an interesting way to travel a great distance in order to save Whako the white lion cub.
Can place hold the secret to happiness? In his quest for a sanctuary away from the demands and pressures of Johannesburg, Justin Marshall buys land in the rugged lowveld wilderness, hoping that it will serve as a sanctuary for his daughter who has been left partially disabled due to his negligence – perhaps for himself too.
‘Okay….the decision has been made’ I advise Kim, my wife of 25 years. ‘I am now going to buy a farm, leave my law firm and pursue the country life. ‘This decision’, I continue, ‘is now final and irrevocable. I have considered the issue, weighed up the pros and cons and am now confident that this warrants no more consideration.’
I felt a brush of love against my face
Wings wrapped around me in a warm embrace
I heard a whisper in my ear
‘Don’t you ever give up, I’m right here’

The arrival of storks had heralded spring in Wiktorowka ever since the village was founded. When they arrived in 1940, it was to a scene of total destruction, as all the villagers had been loaded onto cattle trucks and displaced hundreds of kilometres to the icy gulags of Siberia, never to return to their homes in north-western Ukraine.
