About the author

Janice M. Swanson

<p/><p>&#160;Born in New Zealand, married to a man who was salt of the Earth - a keen hunter and fisherman. An avid bush hiker and fisherman herself (trout, sea, and long-lining on the beach), Janice also bred show dogs and tended a one-acre garden. Eventually, her husband passed,&#160;well-educated son moved to the USA, and dogs dwindled in numbers. With a life full of&#160;wonderful experiences, she returned to the manuscript begun earlier. Later, she came to live in the USA where she finished the series.&#160;</p>
