Samantha Ford is a globetrotter in every sense of the word. Wanderlust courses through her veins. She grew up traveling the world, moving from place to place every few years. As she got older, she continued to move about, settling until restlessness crept in, then picking up and moving on.

However the current circumstances this year put paid to any thoughts of going anywhere!

“I have been traveling since I was a little girl, two years here, two years there – different country, different culture, different languages, different schools – I thought everyone lived like that!

I was nine years old when I first came to Africa, and I fell in love with the wildlife and the people. The bush is a wonderful place to get your balance back in life, to pause and take a breath. The animals don’t care about money or politics or the violence in the world today – they just get on with the business of being animals. They can teach us a lot I think.

I write my stories for people who have the same passion as I do for Africa. Many of my readers have left here to live elsewhere – but I know where their hearts lie…

To be compared with John Gordon Davis and Wilbur Smith, two of the greatest writers out of Southern Africa, makes me feel very humble indeed.”
