Biography of Rita Kruger
Rita Kruger lives in Vereeniging, South Africa. She is wife, granddaughter, daughter, mother, and grandmother. Most of childhood happened within the pages of books. Stories conspired to carry her away from the world she knew. The places and people books introduced her to were much more exciting than her boring existence.
Currently married to her personal MacGyver, she surrounds herself with what enriches her body, mind and soul. Family. Friends. Nature. Great food. Good wine. Mountains of books. She writes novels challenging major themes of her life in the genres of FANTASY, THRILLER, PARANORMAL and HORROR, which she loves.
This is where I was born! However, I have not been back to see it since then.
Where I did most of my growing up. My children all live here now, and I see the place often. Just like me, it has changed much.
We lived here for most of my kid’s childhoods. My mother and sister still resides there and I see it regularly.
This is the last town we lived in before our current place. My house was about 20 km from our nearest mall. Loved everything about it read more
I am the middle part of FIVE living generations, which means my mother and grandmother is on one side, and my children and grandchildren on the other side.
My mother rocks! She is my best supporter.
When I was 14 I almost cut off one of my toes stepping on a broken soda bottle, because I was walking (barefoot babe and loving it!) AND reading at the same time!
MODE OF TRANSPORT
I drive a stick. And sometimes a broom, according to my kids.
I am solar-powered, which makes living in sunny South Africa a blessing.
BOOK BUY DEFENSE
You can have too many shoes, but never enough books!
We met this itsy bitsy hedgehog on a vacation to Drankensberg a few years ago. He lives in a reptile park and loved the attention.
The view from my backyard where we used to live. I often wrote outside. I’m still having trouble writing in the city with all the noise.
Another vacation pic. This old bird was a permanent resident of the Bird of Prey park due to a serious injury of his left wing.
A beautiful dam and our future dinner.
