About this author

I was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa in 1973. I wrote my first story at the age of 4 and since managed to obtain a BA degree in Communication. I always tend to see the world at a slightly skew angle. As such, I want to share my view with you. I hope you like it. As a matter of fact, I hope you love it.

I love animals, furry puppies that grow to be 18 years and older especially, I have four that share my love, life and bed with me. I also have a turtle, but he is not allowed to sleep with us.

I love cooking, trying out new recipes etc and thus love to entertain. It seems, whether I am at writing or cooking or simply living life - I aim to entertain.

What a delightfully short little horror story!
The pace is fast, the action almost instantaneous and effortless. The story is well written and packs a real punch for such a short short!
A must read for horror genre lovers!

Papap's Teeth by Danielle DeVor
" "Papap's Teeth" by Danielle DeVor is a great short horror story with a dose of sentiment and nostalgia and a few very hairy moments. What is in grandfather's wooden box and how will it affect Sara's life?
I can't tell you, but I will say that DeVo... " Read more of this review »
