About The Author
Louise Rose-Innes is an English writer, however, most of her childhood was spent in Africa. She grew up on the wild sub-tropical east coast of South Africa and spent most of her time exploring the rainforests or kayaking on the river that ran through the bottom of their garden.
In A PASSION SO WILD, she draws strongly on this experience, which is evident in the rich descriptions of the Congolese jungle and the gorilla sanctuary on which the novel is set.
Her latest release, the romantic thriller UNDERCURRENT, explores the longing for excitement that her main character, P.I. Munro Crane experiences after being discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps, and his subsequent foray into extreme sports, particularly white-water kayaking.
A keen surfer, kayaker and all-round watersports fanatic, Louise relates strongly to the adrenalin rush that her hero feels when conquering the dangerous rapids of the Little White Salmon River near to where he lives in Washington state, even though this doesn’t make up for the excitement of the military.
