Katherine Scholes was born in Tanzania, East Africa, the daughter of a missionary doctor and an artist. She has fond memories of travelling with her parents and siblings on long safaris to remote areas where her father operated a clinic from his Land Rover. When she was ten, the family left Tanzania, going first to England and then settling in Tasmania.

As an adult, Katherine moved to Melbourne with her filmmaker husband. After working there for many years, writing books and making films, they returned with their two sons to live in Tasmania. Katherine is the author of international bestsellers The Rain Queen, Make Me an Idol, The Stone Angel, The Hunter’s Wife and Lioness. She is especially popular in Germany and France, where she has sold over two million books.
