Bonnie de Beer grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. As a girl, she was an avid reader and often turned to her imagination to escape into various fun adventures.
Over the years she wrote poetry and outlines for several books, including Mila & Wallace, but never took her writing further. Her two children inspired her to complete Mila & Wallace.
Bonnie loves the South African bush and wildlife. Mila & Wallace were born while watching the antics of various animals in South African game reserves.
Bonnie believes that it is important for children to develop a love for learning and hopes to author more books for children that are fun and educational.
