Author of: Meditation In My Favourite Places In Southern Africa, Time Trials & The Firstborn of God. Where did you grow up and was reading and writing
a part of your life? Who were your earliest influences and why?

Gail Evans: I grew up in Pretoria where the smell of jasmine fills the air in spring, the Jacarandas overshadow the city with purple blooms in early summer, the Union Buildings are massed with rose buds and bougainvillea pours over every second fence.

My earliest influence came from Miss Sinclair, my grade 6 teacher who read us Olive Schreiner's "The Story Of An African Farm" and encouraged us to write poetry and prose. The First book that I ever bought for myself when I was eleven years old was "The Silver Plume," a collection of Schreiner's writings. Luckily my Grandmother owned a bookshop and was able to obtain a copy. Perhaps this bookshop was also an influence. How could one not end up loving books when your earliest years were spent sitting on the floor, surrounded by shelves filled with the magic of stories, wisdom, poetry and adventure?...........................
