My name is Karin Steyn neé Erasmus. I was born in South Africa and taken to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) at the age of six weeks.

I grew up as a Rhodesian and left the country during turbulent times, when a new government and a new name for the country came into existence. I was 14 years old at the time. It was a traumatic time in my personal life.

My greatest passion from a very young age has been to teach. I completed a diploma in the art of writing through Lyceum College in Johannesburg at the age of 18 and then went on to study for a teaching diploma.

First and foremost, I am a teacher. I started teaching in 1988. Since 2003, I've been teaching English as a first and second language to high school learners. In October 2013, I enrolled at North West University to study my B.Ed Honours degree: Teaching and Learning. I graduated in April 2016.

In 2003, I wrote my first book, a children's book, named 'Pop-In Jay Pomp'. I have also written a romance adventure, 'Mareijke's Courage' and a mystery crime, 'The 6th Commandment, Thou Shalt Not Kill'. My fourth book is a motivational book for teens, 'The Power is Yours'.

I am married and I have two beautiful children.

I have faith in life. I have faith in change. I live for helping people to see the ray of light. Life is hard and every living person has some kind of burden to carry. Making a difference in the life of another person, no matter how small, means that I have reached out and touched faith.
