Hennie skryf reeds sedert ’n baie vroeë ouderdom en van sy eerste gedigte het al in standerd twee in "Die Jongspan" verskyn. Sy eerste kortverhale is in "Die Naweek" gepubliseer en in sy matriekjaar aanvaar die Huisgenoot ’n eerste kortverhaal deur hom. Hy noem homself ’n obsessionele dagboekhouer, iets waarmee hy reeds as veertienjarige begin. In 1963 debuteer Hennie met sy eerste prosabundel, "Een somermiddag" wat gevolg word deur talle ander. Afgesien van essays, kortverhale en gedigte het hy ook sy stempel op die genres van kabaret, liriek- en liedtekste afgedruk en verskeie van sy kabarette is opgevoer.
