The Fat Man’s Books

I am a graphic designer and photographer by training and my love for words have a long standing reach beyond my love for visual communication. My words are raw and uncensored, preferring to have a conversation with my readers and taking them on a journey. Yes, there are spelling errors and grammatical mistakes, but I own them as my own and see them as a part of the reality of my books.

I am currently in the process of creating my book for South Africa.

Writing has always been a passion for me. Writing in journals or just in random sections of books - it is the way my mind decompresses and I get some sort of freedom from real life strain.
