I grew up in Germany and Evadeen Brickwood is my pen name. I studied cultural sciences and languages and traveled extensively as a teenager and in my twenties. Feeling adventurous and with a new qualification as a translator under my belt, I moved to Africa in 1988. I worked as a secretary and language teacher in Botswana, but after a while I contemplated returning to Europe. South Africa seemed a better option and I soon settled in Johannesburg. My South African life began.
I met and married my German husband and we raised 2 daughters. I studied computers, worked as a corporate software trainer and professional translator and in 2003, I began to write novels.
Today, we still live in Johannesburg and now my daughters are doing the studying and traveling, while I - still happily married - work at home and write my books (which I don’t really consider work).
