ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Suzanne Lowe
I was born in Perth Western Australia and as a young adult grew up in the small country town of Tom Price situated in the outback of Western Australia. Travelling extensively throughout Australia, I loved seeing the diverse landscapes and animals of the country. My current home is in Perth with my husband, two daughters and our cat Abby.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree, and my interests include watching movies, travelling, photography and reading. I also enjoy going to Sci-Fi conventions!
I have an adventurous spirit and have had the opportunity to experience many exciting adventures including swimming with Whale Sharks on Ningaloo Reef, climbing to Mt Everest base camp, descending into one of the pyramids at Giza in Egypt, flying in a hot air balloon over the Valley of the Kings, parachuting from a plane at 12000 feet and sitting on the edge of an active volcano on Tanna island in Vanuatu!
