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.


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.

Author/illustrator of Fauna Park Tales – the Series.  The first three books have been published on Amazon.  For more information, click on the following links:
