About the author:
Caroline was born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa during the peak of the apartheid years. As a result she is passionate about human rights and helping the community to gain awareness of issues facing our modern world. The Rising is the third book of The Destiny Chronicles.

She trained as a Primary School teacher and spent years teaching and lecturing before giving it up to go into ministry with her husband Hamilton. Together they took on the adventure of relocating to the South Island of New Zealand with their three children to establish a church. Learning to adapt to a new culture and relate to people of diverse cultures was a delight and inspiration to her. An event that changed the family's life and purpose led them to relocate and start afresh on the North Island of New Zealand. There Caroline began writing as a therapeutic exercise after personal trauma and discovered the power of words and the freedom that writing brings. She began with short children's stories followed by the Awakening - book 1 of the Destiny Chronicles. Writing soon became a love and a way to express her thoughts.

In 2010 an opportunity came for the family to relocate to Melbourne Australia where she currently lives with her husband and four children. They also share their home with two siblings in foster care, numerous goldfish, four chickens and a guinea-pig.

Caroline continues to write about anything that inspires her. She blogs on her fostering journey and is currently working on her second and third books in the Destiny Chronicles (between changing diapers, playing supermom and wonder woman to her family).

Her dream is to help others work through trauma, despair, depression using the medium of writing.

Wild at heart...
Isabel Williams yearns for a life of adventure. She unexpectedly finds her world turned upside down when she's thrust into a culture she does not understand. Every value she holds dear is challenged as she begins to experience life from a new perspective. Will she be courageous enough to open her heart to embrace new truth, to rise above the circumstances that threaten her long-held beliefs; or will she allow her intolerance to threaten her chance at happiness?
A novel where prejudice confronts acceptance - only one will rise to conquer the other.
