Liz Wickins has always lived in Johannesburg. Her writing was originally inspired by the need to tell the story of the life of her son, Jonathan, who was born with Down syndrome and has since passed away. This was the start of putting thoughts on paper.
She stumbled onto the subject of Kariba while researching another book and became totally fascinated and engrossed and has felt a very strong commitment to tell the story of Kariba as she believes South Africans deserve to know about it.
With co-author Mike Wickins, Liz wrote Whispers from the Depths – The Kariba Story (releasing in May 2015).
Liz is married to Barry, and has a son, Graeme, a daughter-in-law and two grandsons. She has a degree in Psychology and has always balanced her writing with doing accounting work.
