Rossandra White, a fourth generation South African, spent the first twenty-three years of her life in Zambia, where she had a baboon for a pet and learned to tell a log from a crocodile. She’s the author of the recently published novel, Monkey’s Wedding, set in Zimbabwe, as well as the memoir, Loveyoubye: Holding Fast, Letting Go, And Then There’s The Dog. She lives in Laguna Beach with her two Staffordshire Bull Terriers, with whom she fights for space in her bed. When she’s not writing, she’s at the gym or hiking the hills behind her home in Laguna Beach.
