A humorous look into the lives of a young, fun-loving royal lion from Darkest Africa, together with his wacky, bohemian friends and pen pals from Yellowstone Park, who dodge their families and responsibilities, in search of fun and adventure. But they got more than they have bargained for. Vanishing one dark and stormy night from dear Old England, due to a laptop and an Oracle one of the animals had summoned, they unbelievably find themselves back in time, in ancient Egypt, as privileged guests of the Pharaoh. Trying to "escape" from this mysterious and haunting land that had left a blueprint on them all, there only means of escape was by boat. But not any boat would do. The subsequent christening and launching of the magnificent Queen Kate by Egypt's femme fatal, Queen Cleopatra, at Alexandria's harbor, was just the beginning of a whole new, exciting life, for them all.

About the author (2004)

Being born in Chingola, in the then Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia.  Chingola being situation right on the border of the then Belgian Congo with of course its splendid forests with all its wonderful animal and bird life, the author always had a special affinity for animals great and small.  It seemed only natural that her love for them had eventually prompted her to write her first novel about their antics.


Today she lives in Pretoria, South Africa, and is currently working at McGregor BFA, situated at the University of Pretoria.
