Hi, I’m D.I. Jolly.

I was born and raised in South Africa and fell in love with the idea of being a writer when I was around 7 years old. My parents bought a computer from a friend and it came with the game Gabriel Knight. I was probably too young for the game but that didn’t matter to me. I loved the character and decided that he was who I wanted to be when I grew up, and he was a writer. So that’s what I was going to be. Last childhood dream standing but here we are.

I’ve written six novels so far and I’m working on my seventh. So far five are published, mostly by Tinpot Publishing, and are available on Amazon. One also has its digital destitution rights licensed by the Galatea reading app.

I also have two short story anthologies also published by Tinpot Publishing.

I’ve also done some working as a story writer for video game companies, which is just a hell of a lot of fun.
