Born in Ficksburg, South Africa, trained to be a journalist, fell in love - for keeps - at 16, married at 19, wrote novels, played the piano in my husband's dance band for 35 years, had two children, studied to be a teacher, started my own school and then, in 1978, emigrated to Canada, where I am blessed to be Founder and President Emerita of the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society, the Founder and President Emerita of the Haemochromatosis Society of South Africa, and the Founder and Former President of the International Association of Haemochromatosis Societies. For 30 years, except for a series of travel articles, I devoted my literary efforts entirely to the writing of more than 300 articles on the subject of hemochromatosis, and the production of patient literature for individuals, hospitals and other medical facilities. Now back to novel writing, I am thrilled to be able to see my 27th book in print, and have recently uploaded my 9th e-Book
