Up until 2002, Anna Othitis lived in Zimbabwe. Now in New Jersey, USA, she couldn’t stop thinking about the lovely places back in Africa. Meanwhile, people in her new home were eager to learn about where she came from. So she did what any sensible person would do: she wrote a book, a children’s book, in which she features such lovely destinations as the Serengeti and Victoria Falls, with three more books in the pipeline.
The inspiration for her main character (Captain Frankie) was her youngest son who is currently studying to be a commercial pilot and instructor.
