Born on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean, Tikiri spent her childhood in the savannas of Southern Africa, and has lived and worked in Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America. She recently revived her passion for books, and is dedicating the rest of her life to empowering marginalized young women around the world, so they may have the same opportunities she has been lucky to have.
Books, to her, were an escape from a volatile childhood, opening doors to adventures, possibilities. It was books that inspired and empowered her, and guided her through life’s obstacles. Today, she writes to entertain, but more importantly, she writes to inspire young women around the world to live their lives to the fullest.
