My name is S.J. Coetzee and I’m the Writing Counter Manager here at INKFISH. I was born in Nelspruit, South Africa and I now reside in a small town close to Johannesburg named Delmas.

As a writer, I often draw inspiration from my surroundings. Working from home enables me to regularly draw inspiration from new spaces and I feel that this brings great improvement to my creative thinking and writing.

What would you do with a million dollars?
I’d buy myself a smart home, smart car and everything else that’s “smart”. Life would be so much simpler if everything around me just happened by itself.

What would be your dream car?
Why just one? I have much bigger dreams. I want a huge garage filled with Mustangs, Corvettes, Ferrari’s and more! Who wouldn’t want that?

What unusual place would you like to visit and why?
I’ve always wanted to go to an uninhabited island. I’ve always been an avid camper and survivalist and I think it would be an amazing adventure. Just think of the possible discoveries.

What is your best hidden talent?
I once managed to throw and catch 10 jellybeans in my mouth one after the other without dropping one. If that isn’t talent, I don’t know what is.

Pirates or ninjas? Or something else? Why?
Viking!!! How was this not included in the question. Vikings are awesome and no one could ever disagree.

City or nature person? Why?
Nature, nature and more nature. Absolutely love the outdoors. I’ve always thought I could go live in the wild. Start from scratch and “live off the land” so to speak.
