The Amanzimtoti Series

(pronounced A-MAN-ZIM-TOTI)
from the isiZulu ‘amanzi mtoti’ meaning SWEET WATERS


Set in Amanzimtoti, South Africa, the series follows Wayne du Preez as he commences his matric. Completing his final year of high school won’t be his only problem however when a boy from his past returns to small town Toti, throwing Wayne’s picket-fence dreams with girlfriend Jess into a tailspin and forcing Wayne to deal with a part of himself he’s been denying ever since he shared his first kiss with Kyle way back when.
