About the author (2012)

Born and raised in the sleepy town of Port Elizabeth in South Africa, Gaby Halberstam's passion for writing began at the age of five when she started penning stories for her family and friends. After studying English as an adult, she went on to become a qualified lawyer, a career choice she immediately regretted knowing that she'd be much happier as a professional writer. Now based in London with her husband and three children, Gaby has achieved her childhood dream and is a full time author. Boudica is her first publication for A & C Black.
