John van de Ruit was born in Durban, South Africa. He went to the University of Natal where he completed a Masters degree in Drama and Performance. Since 1998 he has been a professional actor, playwright and producer, winning numerous awards. A feature film of John's first novel, Spud, was released in 2010 starring John Cleese.
One of those books which could easily be dismissed as nothing more

wonderful book. * Metrobeat *
