About the author (2010)

LAUREN BEUKES is a writer, TV scriptwriter and recovering journalist. For the sake of a story, she's jumped out of planes and into shark-infested waters and hung out with teen vampires, township vigilantes, and AIDS activists among other interesting folk. When she's not tutoring her baby daughter in practical ways to take over the world, she also writes books, short stories, magazine articles and TV scripts.
