Eugenie C Smith


Eugenie C Smith was born in Cheshire, England, and moved to West Africa in the 1960's where her husband worked as a design engineer. The African culture and political environment inspired her to write her first novel, Between Two Worlds, which was first published in America when she moved there with her husband and family in 1967.

Her travels continued to Johannesburg and Cape Town in 1970's apartheid South Africa, where family and work made for a busy life. A return to England saw the development of her career in the fields of charity, overseas property, and marketing. But writing was never too far away. Further novel ideas evolved, including Two Shades of Black, a powerful story, again born of her experiences in Africa.

The family's involvement in sailing provided a departure from work and writing... but not for long. Her light-hearted memoir, 'Vin Rouge, Fiestas and a Small Boat', is somewhat of a departure from her more serious writing, but captures the essence of her observational style in a humorous account of a sailing trip through the French canals to Spain. The book is an Amazon #1 Bestseller and is now followed by 'Vino Tinto, Villas and Sailing', a continuation of the travelogue that takes us from sailing along Spain's coastline into the world of villa sales - a career that funded the nautical adventures.
