Growing up in Africa during the ‘50’s and ‘60’s, Katlynn Brooke’s childhood was an unusual one, even by African standards. While her city peers were learning how to dance to Chubby Checker’s The Twist, Katlynn had to find her own entertainment. She developed a love for reading and writing, penning plays and short stories for the entertainment of her family. Her other hobby was day-dreaming.
Katlynn’s education was a mix of home-schooling in hastily constructed pole and mud shelters, and some years of boarding school when things got too much for her long-suffering mother. She attended day-school for a few brief years, but then her pioneering father, whose job was to create an infrastructure in isolated places for the government of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), would take his family back on the road again.
Katlynn is still an avid reader and day-dreamer, but now she is able to draw extensively on her past experiences and dreams to create out-of-the-ordinary fantasy novels: novels that will not only entertain her readers, but inspire, just as she was once inspired.
