Maretha is a South African Italian, born in a small town called Montague. She grew up in nearby Worcester in the Western Cape – a town reminiscent of living in Switzerland among the snow-capped mountains. cropped-marethabotha.png

Maretha Botha admits to being a chocoholic and unreformed coffee addict, a keen gardener and bird watcher, who likes to walk on the moors where the stiff breeze coming in from the sea, quickly clears her head, making way for more inspiration.

She is the author/illustrator of Fauna Park Tales – the Series and has also published  a few short stories. One is called, “Saving The Evergreens – Garden Secrets”, which is written, not only for younger readers, but for all those who are still amazed by all the goings-on in the undergrowth.

The first four books are available on Amazon as eBooks as well as in black-and-white illustrated paperbacks.  For a preview and/or where to buy any of these books, please click on the following links:


I’ve received a few free gifts – one is the gift of life and another the gift of choice – and so I choose to live my life positively, despite life’s many ups and downs, having hope that tomorrow will always be better.
