IT BEGAN WITH A WORD
… and then another until, eventually, after toiling and many a troubling night, a story was born. Then another. Through bleeding fingertips and sweating palms, tossing and churning, the author was born. Anike Kirsten occupies a little plot in the dead centre of South Africa with her spawns and spouse, cat, and spiders.
She is an amateur scientist and artist who also enjoys exploring the possibilities, as well as the improbabilities, within her stories. Fragments of her imagination have been scattered across to Nature: Futures, Avescope, and other fine publications. And she shares them with the world on the HIVE blockchain.
