Author biography

Myra King was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. After spending time in the USA, she finally settled in England, with her husband, young son and border collie. Despite her enduring love affair with her adopted country, Myra retains a link to her motherland as a place with a lot of stories to tell, and one of the main inspirations in her writing. After a serious fall from her horse at 19, Myra knew she would never be able to get into a saddle again, so she switched her focus to her writing.
