Since my earliest memories of growing up in Mokhotlong, ‘the British Empire’s remotest Outpost’ in the African mountainous kingdom of Lesotho, I’ve loved adventure.

After Independence I emigrated with my family to Adelaide, Australia, where I did my schooling before getting a job as a journalist, writing fiction in the evenings and features for newspapers and magazines during the day.

In my twenties, the chance discovery of my grandfather's pictorial diary led to my visiting Botswana, the country where he and my father were born and brought up. My holiday resulted in an unexpected job offer to manage a safari lodge for two months in the beautiful Okavango Delta. There I met and - after a whirlwind courtship - married my handsome Norwegian bus

When Grace discovers she is to be servicing the man whose secret she’d guarded at the cost of her once-secure position as a housemaid and whose betrayal has plunged her into this hated life, she wants revenge.
