Two Authors from Down Under

My sister and I have spent many hours co-writing the “My Genie & Me” series for the past two years. Even though we love writing it has been quite challenging because we live over a thousand miles apart. Thanks to the internet.

We were raised in Australia, but also lived in England and now we call USA our home.

It’s our love of travel, adventure and fantasy as well as the facts of Science and Ancient History that stimulates our imagination in writing these books.

While writing “My Genie and Me” series we always kept in mind what we call the “4 Fs” – Fun, Fantasy, Fact and Fiction that would make these books entertaining for the whole family.
