Torn Trousers: A True Story of Courage and Adventure: How A Couple Sacrificed Everything To Escape to Paradise


Winner of the 2016 eBook Festival of Words Best Non-Fiction Award.

A humorous romp through the African wilds...

Tired of house and car payments, thirty-something Andrew and Gwynn, and their Siamese cat, Woodie, did the proverbial vanishing act. They ended up on a desert island in one of the most idyllic spots on Earth: the Okavango Delta in Botswana, southern Africa.

Woefully inexperienced, these hapless escapees took control of a luxury lodge, where the rich and pampered went to spot big game while sipping G&Ts.

Trouble soon followed.

Amongst others, their guests included a famous Hollywood director, a group of French aristocrats, a Mafia lawyer, and a world-class cricketer.

Their stays were punctuated by visits from bad-tempered elephants, malicious baboons, and a hyena with a plastic fetish.

Torn Trousers is an enchanting adventure of how a dream to escape went badly wrong and perfectly right, all at the same time.

I'm a USA Today bestselling author who writes high-octane steampunk fantasy. All my stories have an adventure at the heart with a liberal sprinkling of romance and intrigue thrown into the mix. To confuse things, I also write adventure travel books set firmly on planet Earth. Weird, I know, but it makes me tick.

I'm a South African, currently living in the UK with my husband, Andrew, my three daughters, a yapping Toy Pomeranian, and a fantastic farm cat called Pixel.

When I'm not writing, I'm reading, traveling, herding kids around, taking dogs for walks, and avoiding all cooking. I love to hear from my readers, so please feel free to contact me
