Chantal Mortimer


I live, and write, in the beautiful Scenic Rim Region, in southeast Queensland, Australia. My small property is surrounded by rolling hills, with dramatic mountains in the backdrop. With misty mornings, spectacular sunsets, and the Milky Way just beyond my fingertips in the evenings, it is very hard not to be inspired. Daily.

According to my family, I was 'born with a pen in my hand' and lived in an imaginative world for most of my childhood. Ha!

The first novel I read, when I was about 15, was Wilbur Smith's 'When the Lions Feed.' I knew from the moment I finished reading it, I wanted to captivate readers with my own stories. Thanks, Wilbur, I've read every one of your books, a hundred times or more, and have no doubt I will read them again!
