About Evadeen Brickwood

I grew up in Germany and studied cultural sciences and languages, while traveling extensively as a teenager and in my twenties. Many of my books were inspired by such travel experiences, which were all on a shoestring budget. It forced me to go out and meet people and improvise. Of course, everybody thought I was reckless, but I just didn’t have the money to stay in hotels and guesthouses. In 1988, I moved to Africa with a boyfriend and worked in Botswana as a language teacher and secretary. The move was not well-prepared and when the relationship floundered, it became difficult to live as a single female in the expatriate community. Returning to Europe was out of the question and promising South Africa seemed a better option in the early nineties. For a while there were plans to move to Hong Kong, where some of my former colleagues from Botswana had lived. Eventually I settled in Johannesburg and embarked on my South African life. Things were different to what I had expected and after a while, it became my home. I met and married my German husband and raised 2 daughters with him, studied computers and management of training, worked as a corporate software trainer, opened a training consultancy and was active in business committees. But times were tough for us financially and I decided to go back to translating and teaching. I don't know how I found the energy to write books as well, but I guess I needed a creative outlet. Things went well with the books and although nobody in South Africa wanted to publish children's books at the time, I found a publisher. Then another one. An order for 25,000 copies of 'Children of the Moon' was processed when the economic crisis hit and my publisher had to close. Everything came to a grinding halt. We are still in Johannesburg and now my daughters are doing the studying and travelling, while I – still happily married -work and write my books at home (which I don’t really consider work). I keep on writing and all my books are going online with Smashwords now.

Review by: Franciska Bottner on Feb. 13, 2014 :
Loved the first book! And I'm a grown-up. Speaking Stone is the perfect sequel to Children of the Moon. Want to read book3 now. What happens after the shipwreck cliffhanger?
