About the Author
To many people around the world, Marie Warder is known chiefly as the Founder and President Emeritus of both the Canadian and South African Hemochromatosis Societies, and the Founder and former President of the International Association of Haemochromatosis Societies. However, before writing her two groundbreaking books on Hemochromatosis (made available in one volume in 2000, in the new edition of The Bronze Killer - which contributed to her being awarded a medal of honour and certificate of honour in Canada - she was already the author of many very successful novels; four of them used in South African schools. All were chosen as "Books of the Month" and were so eagerly awaited that it was not uncommon to find updates on progress in several newspapers.
Not surprisingly, many of her stories take place in and around newspaper offices for, according to "The Journalist", she became, at the age of seventeen, the youngest chief reporter in the world, having sold her first newspaper article at the age of 11 and her first short story at 17. During her career as a journalist she was privileged to interview some the worlds most famous people.
