about the author
Marilize is an author of historical romance set in Cape Town, South Africa. She has always had a fascination for Regency Romance, but although she has read plenty of romances set in other British Colonies, she has never found one set in the Cape of Good Hope, and decided to remedy the situation. Occasionally she dabbles in short stories, contemporary romance and comedy. 
She has been an avid reader all her life, and pronounced proudly to her mother once, when she was five years old, that she would one day write a book. 
She has tried her hand at many different occupations, including riding instructor, horse-trail guide, stable manager, freelance typist, photographic assistant, saddler, show secretary, maintenance contractor’s assistant, horse handler on television shows, public relations consultant, and Administrative assistant. 
She lives with her husband and son in Cape Town and is currently hard at work on her next novel.
