There is a sequel to White Zulu called Scottish Zulu, which follows on directly from the end of White Zulu, describing my arrival at Glencruitten House, overlooking Oban Bay on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. The contrast between my carefree, barefoot days in South Africa, and the constraints of living with my frosty in-laws in the bleak, equally frosty conditions of the Scottish winter, is very marked.
There is a second book, already completed, called Okavango Diary, awaiting publication. This describes a time in my life when I was running two luxury tourist camps in the heart of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, a neigbouring country in southern Africa.
I was employed as relief camp manager, along with two other white staff members, and ran both lodges, accommodating sixteen guests at a time, and had a fairly large staff of River Bushmen employed from the local tribe there. My job was to keep the guests, mainly from America, Europe and the UK, comfortable, well fed and safe, while making sure the staff did their jobs. Throughout this, I had to keep all the wild animals from making themselves too much at home in the unfenced camps.
Okavango Diary started off as weekly letters home to my family, describing daily incidents that occurred. They loved them so much that they suggested that I make them into a book.
I have also almost completed a children's book called Dusty, the Bushveldt Bear, which is narrated by my sixty three year old teddy bear, Dusty, who is featured with me on the homepage of this website. This is a collection of short stories narrated by him, and describe all the bits that I didn't put into White Zulu. There are plenty of stories of my Zulu friends, the snakes, the animals and my pony, which took precedence in my life before I was hauled off to boarding school at the age of twelve.
My last planned book will be called CROW Diary and will consist of short stories again, this time describing my career as a wildlife veterinary nurse, hand rearing all kinds of animals, from mongooses to monkeys to a two-week old White Rhino calf. I also nursed and took care of reptiles and birds of every species imaginable.
