About the Author
Maryann Martinsen grew up in Salt Lake City with five brothers and sisters and a wide assortment of pets. Many of the animals that padded their way into her heart were rescues-baby birds, lost ferrets, stray cats, and abandoned dogs. Surrounded by the magnificent Wasatch Mountains, she found herself drawn to the natural world: both the beauty in her own back yard and the exotic wonders of the earth-especially the savannas and jungles of Africa. She discovered her love for creative writing the moment she learned to put letters together to construct words, and words together to build sentences. Perhaps it was when she snuck her first handwritten "novel" onto the shelf at her neighborhood supermarket, proudly displayed alongside the "other" bestsellers, that the dream of Beyond the Savanna was born. A mother of three, Maryann spends her free time gardening, reading, and basking in the inspiration and serenity of the great outdoors with her husband and family, including the ever-expanding assortment of pets she calls her babies.
