BBB: What inspired you to be a writer?
TM: I remember reading Samuel or Paul Kahiga, from Kenya. His books were about African romance. I said that's my guy. I read books by Major Mwangi like a Carcass for Hounds and by Ngugi Matigari. I was shattered. I read Farai's Girls & Dew in the Morning by Shimmer Chinodya. I knew my genre. Ama Ata Aidoo added to my inspiration
TM: My country was embroiled in a civil war between 1972 - 79. A lot of things happened during the was including heroism and bravery on both sides. A lot of atrocities and assassinations too. After peace talks which the nationalists said was a victory and the Rhodesian army ex-soldiers called a sell out by politicians instability remained. This time it was between the two ex-guerilla movements riding shotgun against each other within Matebeleland provinces, parts of Midlands and in Bulawayo between 1980-87. While researching on the activities of the regular professional Rhodesian Caucusian soldiers I came up with the idea of an ex-Rhodesian infantry major living in independent Zimbabwe.
