About the Author
More About the Author
Born in South Africa, I immigrated to the US having lived in California, Minnesota, Alabama and Canada. I am a mother, grandmother and wife, and my family is the core of my life. All that I see, feel, experience feeds and inspires my writing. What I have learned in college and through wide reading informs my writing. I earned MA degrees in education of the gifted and talented, and in public history. The series of YA Eco mysteries for 4-8 graders, The Adventures of The Sizzling Six, reflects my passion and awe for the natural world. With the trusty aid of Boris Datnow, my technological guru, the third book in the series uses QR codes to transport readers from the printed word on the page to video clips that let readers see and hear what the characters in the story are seeing and hearing! My memoir, Behind the Walled Garden of Apartheid, drew inspiration from a beautiful country scared by the iniquities of apartheid. The Final Diagnosis: What The Autopsy Reveals About Life and Death is a tribute to my husband, an autopsy pathologist. My historical novel, The Nine Inheritors, pays homage to my grandmother and two aunts and all those killed in the Holocaust. What's next? On my trip to Australia, I found inspiration for the fourth book in the eco mystery series for middle grades, The Adventures of The Sizzling Six: Who Kidnapped The Koala? My newest books are published as Enhanced e-books as well as electronic books.

I have also read "The Final Diagnosis: What Autopsies Reveal about Life and Death," co-written by this same author and her husband, who is a practicing pathologist, and can recommend that book as a great read as well. The subject is very different--but the writing and story lines equally enthralling. Hard to put down!
If you like to read and love good story telling, try both!
Another thing I really loved about the book was the incorporation of QR codes that then linked up to videos and web pages that helped bring the stories and situations to light. Everyone has a Smartphone or computer with a camera and this is a great way to keep kids interested and involved with the story.
Overall, I loved the series. They are a great not only for children, but older adults too. The integration of technology and the story was a great move!
