In 1993 she received a degree in African Literature and Psychology from the University of the Witwatersrand. She has had fiction and poetry published in a number of local journals and anthologies, including The Finishing Touch (Cosaw, 1992), Like a House on Fire (Cosaw, 1994), LyfSpel/BodyPlay (Kagiso, 1994), The Torn Veil (1998) and in In the Rapids (Kwela 2001). Her first poetry collection, A life stripped of illusions, received the 1994 Sanlam Award for poetry, while a short story, 'Couple on the Beach' was a winner of the same award in 1999 for short fiction. Her second collection of poetry, The fire in which we burn, was published in 2000.
