About Kleinboer

Kleinboer, Hans PienaarKleinboer (photo: left) is the pen name of one of the last white people remaining in Yeoville. He was born on the East Rand in 1956 and grew up in Kempton Park.

After working for twenty-odd years as a computer programmer and systems administrator in Johannesburg, he resigned in 1999 and used his pension money as financial back-up to write his first book, Kontrei, at home. He has since worked as a subeditor for an agricultural magazine. The bug has bitten again, and he recently resigned with the aim of writing another book.

He nurses a patch of tomatoes in his backyard. He doesn’t frequent casinos but has a flutter at Lotto twice a week.
