Laura is from Johannesburg, South Africa—a majestic ever-changing country where mountains soar, wild animals roam, and a rainbow nation is emerging. She attended Athlone Girls High School and studied accounting. Laura presently works as a financial manager in the engineering sector. She has three sons who work in the music and arts sector.
From a young age, reading and writing have always been a favorite pastime and after completing several short stories, Laura attempted to write a full length novel. The encouragement received from her friends and family members, as well as spending time with the Zulu elders, inspired Laura to write a novel which included the Zulu culture and their part of history. The well-known authors of the fantasy genre were a great inspiration to Laura. She is presently completing the second novel in this series and taking Sipho on more daring adventures.
