My love for the written word took off when I started my first job as a journalist for a community newspaper. In my observation and interaction with people from different walks of life – families of murder victims, victims of scams, perpetrators of crime, retrenched workers, among many others, fact and fiction sometimes become blurred as interested parties try to gain the upper hand. This led me to wonder who is the good person and who is the bad one in every story I pursued. Looking at the bigger picture, I became more interested in the question of man’s motivation and nature. Can bad people do good things? Can good people do bad things? Why?
