Coreena Le Gallienne was born in 1960, in Melbourne, Victoria. Living on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia, she has three children and lives with her partner, Don. She is currently enjoying working in the aged care industry. Writing stories and poetry has been a passion from a very young age. As a child Coreena, her Dad, Mum, and brother would go camping, learning survival skills and about all creatures, great and small. Recently returning from South Africa with her Mum was a dream come true for the both of them. Going on safaris and seeing animals close and in their natural environment was amazing.
