About Me


Read my biography on Wikipedia.

I talk too much. I get overexcited when something catches my interest. When time allows, I escape to the bush or the mountains to restore a sense of calm and timeless rhythm to my life..

With the beat of Africa in my blood, my writing is set in this continent, which has deep passion as its heart. The driving motivation of my characters is the search for love in all its forms.

Although I now live in Johannesburg, the economic powerhouse of Africa, my childhood was played out in the Zimbabwean bush. Born in a little village called Zvishavane, I’ve spent most of my life in South Africa. My diverse career path has had me working as a waitress in a steakhouse; as a bartender in an English pub (to earn money to pay for a hot air balloon ride for my Mom and myself!); and as an accountant, which was my career for many years, before I turned to writing and a more serious interest in tarot and astrology. 

I was married to the Late Dr Beric Croome (1960 - 2019)
