Born and bred in Manchester UK, Deryn found her way to Johannesburg, South Africa in 1995 via Spain, France and Greece. She remains a Brit by birth but is South African by choice. She has worked in the hospitality industry in marketing, as a radio and tv producer and is now in PR and communications which means kind of writing for a living. Now for that novel.
Deryn is the mother of 2 sons, middle of 3 sisters, owner of a dog and the ex wife and ex girlfriend of men who clearly didn’t deserve her. Still, she remains an eternal optimist for herself, her native and adopted countries and indeed the planet, so please, world, don’t let her down.
