Estelle Ryan was born in South Africa and spent her childhood being surrounded by African beauty, nature and diversity of cultures. Her first trip to Europe at the tender age of 16 transformed her world into a much larger place, endless in its possibilities and places to explore. For most of her adulthood she’s travelled all over the world, lived on a few continents, explored numerous cultures and is insatiable in the quest to still the hunger for more life experiences.

She’s written for numerous international magazines, was the editor of a European lifestyle magazine and has seven romance novels published under a pseudonym. With her interest in international politics, arts, crime, behavioural psychology, criminal psychology and music, she decided to combine all these elements in her writing. And so Genevieve and the team came into being.

She is an unabashed coffeeshopaholic. Good coffee, ambience and music in the perfect combination is all that is required to turn a mundane coffee shop into her ‘office’. The appropriate coffee shop is chosen depending on the mood, the weather, the type and amount of work that needs to be done and, of course, the craving of the day. All of her books have been written in numerous coffee shops all over the world.

  1. Hi Estelle
    I really enjoyed The Gaugain Connection. So much so, I went and bought Dante as soon as I’d finished it. i’ve put a review on Amazon. You’re only the second author I’ve ever communicated with , to give praise.
    Well done.

    1. Hi Dave! Thank you so much for taking the time to contact me and also a huge thank you for your kind words. I’m so happy you enjoyed The Gauguin Connection. I hope you’ll enjoy Genevieve’s other adventures just as much!


  2. HI Estelle,
    I have read every single book in this series and cannot wait until the next one! Just wanted to drop a line. Have a wonderful time in London!


  3. Hello again Estelle,
    I have a random question, in your pictures it looks like you edit your own material? If so I applaud you tremendously, it’s a daunting task indeed. I was just curious. Your pictures from London warm my heart. I have yet to make it there but someday I will. Hope you’re having a wonderful writing adventure and look forward to the next book!

    1. Hi Linda! You should definitely try to make your way to the UK one day – it is a truly amazing place to explore. About my editing: I *have* to edit after writing. My fingers don’t always catch up with my brain and there are words missing or funny typos I try to eliminate before I send it off to my editor. Each book goes through three different editing processes – independent of my own. First a big edit, then a proofread, then a finer proofread for those final pesky typos. I admire the writers who write a clean manuscript – I’m not one of them. I’m the kind of writer who entertains her editors and proofreaders with funny typos. ๐Ÿ˜Š
