PAUL LEGER ~ email@example.com
Paul Leger was born in the Wild West mining town of Virginia, South Africa. After matriculating, he stumbled through a degree in Journalism and a MA in Psychology at Rhodes University.
He cycled northern and eastern Europe, worked on a kibbutz, and eventually returned to South Africa to take on an academic research job. Very soon after he fled the ivory tower, strapped a bike to the back of his VW Golf and set out to write South Africa's first guide to mountain biking trails. This was followed by six editions of the popular Guide to Budget Getaways - the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
Bitten by the bug, he enrolled for a Masters degree in Creative Writing at UCT, and emerged with his first novel, the semi-autobiographical Sean, Eddie and Me. Following a long hiatus filled with property development and tourism in various forms, he finally got it together to write a second novel: Roadkill.
Paul is married with three young children and currently lives and (sort of) works in SA’s new Perth - Plettenberg Bay.
