I have been calling myself a writer since I was 8 yrs old and wrote my first auto-biography at age 10. Born and raised in South Africa I have been living in New Zealand for the past 4 yrs with my husband and young son. I have had many jobs over the years, but have finally been able to fulfill my life-long ambition of being an almost full-time writer of Urban Fantasy (housewife and mother are my other two job titles). I am an avid reader as well as compulsive writer, and love to fill up my Kindle with fantasy, paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I am a passionate animal person, and my life is always filled with animals of all shapes and sizes. I have owned cats, dogs, mice, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, miniature horses, pigs, cows and sheep. I have worked on farms and petting zoos and have handled everything from porcupines and warthogs, to ferrets and hedgehogs. I have hand-raised kittens, lambs and an eagle owl. If I ever give up writing I think I'll study animal behaviour or open my own menagerie.
I also publish toddler e-books for Kindle and iPad under the pen name Norah S Hannaman.
