(1957- ) South African author and illustrator, in the UK from childhood, whose first book, Hetty the Yeti (2004 chap), was written for younger children. She is of some sf interest for the Young Adult Parallon Trilogy comprising Fever (2012), Delirium (2013) and Afterlife (2014), an updating of the Timeslip romance in which a laboratory experiment casts the young protagonist back to 152 CE, where she saves a gladiator's life. They are later forced to flee through time in order to save the universe. [JC]
