I am originally from South Africa, but have lived in the USA for 27 years. I have always loved and have spent a lot of time in nature,
In my thirties and forties I really fell in love with gardening and learning more about the world of herbs. This started me on the path of making herbal products, which I continue to this day. I I am currently semi retired and living a gypsy lifestyle with my husband and our RV. We have covered a lot of miles exploring the western coast and the south west, USA. We have particularly enjoyed the deserts of Arizona and Southern Utah. I hope to write a book about our travels in the South West and include some of our photos.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Well, actually since we are currently living on a horse ranch, it is to get up feed the horses and scoop that poop !
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy walking in nature, whether that is on a beach or on a hiking trail in nature or when traveling in the desert.
