Jolene Raison spends a little time every day fishing for stars, and the rest of the time planning stories for children. She believes stories are dream-seeds, and we should plant worlds full of them for our children. She’s worked as a copywriter, freelance-journalist, business writer, and general wordsmith for hire. Her current adventures include being the director of an industrial hardware store, studying towards her masters in Applied Linguistics, and learning Russian. She lives in Johannesburg with her two most-love hoomans, two pugs, an iguana, several snails and a giant plush penguin named Pondis.
