South Africa is very much in the news mainly due to the world cup looming on the horizon. There have been various documentaries shown on television about what is happening now in South Africa, but not many about how it was in the years of apartheid.
Having lived in Cape Town and Johannesburg in the years of apartheid, I have first hand experience of how it was in those days for English speaking South Africans, Afrikaaners and the many coloured races. This prompted me to write my book entitled Tears of Shame which is fiction based on fact.
Tears of Shame is now ready for publication and like my recently published book entitled Two Shades of Black is controversial, offering a first person authenticity and historical accuracy told in the eyes of a young coloured maid.
