About the author:
André Ferero is a South African who has been living in the south of France since July 2006. He was born in Pretoria, South Africa, and grew up outside the city on a small farm.
After high school André attended the University of Pretoria for four years. After finishing university, when he wasn't working, he spent most of his time traveling. But, like everybody knows, there is never enough time or money (or usually both) for traveling and André hopes to still visit many other places in future.
André's loves in life (after his family and writing) include reading, music, good movies, meeting people from other parts of the world, tasting wine, cycling and exploring earth in fiction and reality.
André loves many different styles of writing and have numerous "favorite" writers. The list includes Patrick Rothfuss, Deon Meyer, Larry McMurtry, Ken Kesey, Philip K. Dick, Paulo Coelho, Joanne Harris, Tolkien and many others.
André currently writes speculative fiction, finding it easier to express himself in that genre. In the worlds he create anything is possible and the restrictions of earth as we know it don't always apply to the characters of futuristic places. André also likes magic realism, where so-called "reality" is infused with everyday magic.
André believes that all human beings are essentially creative and that everybody should strive to find a suitable way in which to express their creativity.
