Stephanie Schellingerhout grew up in New Zealand, sharing a love of birds with her father. As a child she was always writing and won a prize for a poem in primary school.
She lives with her husband and daughter in semi-rural Coatesville, enjoying a peaceful life surrounded by forest reserves and birdlife. They share their home with chickens, ducks, a gosling, a swan, two budgies and two Labradors.
