Africa is my home. I was born and raised in South Africa and have travelled widely across the African continent. The people, places, cultures and animals of Africa remain fascinating and it was only natural that my first book of fiction should be an African Fable.
I live with my husband in the area around Johannesburg, close to our children and grandchildren. Of all the travels we have done, a tent in the African bush remains our favourite.
