Malcolm Colley was born in Nigel, South Africa, in 1942, and spent his teenage years on a small farm in the north, near Naboomspruit. He later served in the army, and was trained in the 1st Special Services Battalion.
He practiced martial arts for 25 years, and although his main profession was working as a Project Manager, his first love remained the sights, sounds and smells of the bush. He now lives in Sussex, England. His first novel Zachariah: The Boer Diamond was published by Valley Press in August 2013.
