I had a fabulous childhood in Livingstone, Zambia, and spent my life exploring the bush. Now I live in our family lodge, Teniqua Treetops. It's off  the beaten track  between Knysna and Sedgefield in a part of the Outeniqua forest.

A life-long love affair with words and history made historical mystery romance a natural fit. I’ve explored southern Africa, traveled to England and France absorbing their rich history.

I studied art and qualified at Pretoria Art College. Most of my works depict wildlife, marine creatures, or the ethnic people of Southern Africa. Writing took a backseat to my art for decades. I decided life was too short to stick to one thing and, despite success in the art field, I chose to concentrate on my writing.

I have three amazing children, two daughters, and a son. They encourage and support everything I do. My second husband was a cop and my soulmate. He was killed in a shooting. This tragedy drove me deeper into writing to escape grief.

I edit, ghostwrite and illustrate for a US company, Inspiration For Writers, Inc. The CEO, Sandy Tritt, is my friend, mentor, and editor. Without her, I would never be where I am.
