Katherine Scholes was born in Tanzania, East Africa, the daughter of a missionary doctor and an artist. She has fond memories of travelling with her parents and siblings on long safaris to remote areas where her father operated a clinic from his Land Rover. When she was ten, the family left Tanzania, going first to England and then settling in Tasmania. As an adult, Katherine moved to Melbourne with her film-maker husband. After working there for many years, writing books and making films, they returned with their two sons to live in Tasmania.

Katherine's internationally bestselling novels have been translated into numerous languages. She is especially popular in Germany and France, where she has sold over two million books.

As we looked through the pictures together, I almost flipped past the one that told so much about who she’d once been. It was only her offhand comment that stopped me.

“That’s the prince.”

Congo Dawn by Katherine Scholes

Congo Dawn by Katherine Scholes
"I loved following Anna's travels. Sometimes thinking her decisions were a little foolhardy, but always acknowledging that she was searching for her past. A little bit of the history of the Congo was interesting as well. A thoroughly enjoyable book..."
Leopard Hall by Katherine Scholes
"Un beau roman qui nous plonge dans l'histoire récente de l'Afrique, et particulièrement celle de la guerre civile au Congo. Si le dépaysement est au rendez-vous, l'histoire d'Anna, l'héroïne, est en revanche un peu convenue et c'est ce qui m'a emp..." Read more of this review »
