Lianné J v Rensburg was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa, in the house her parents built from the ground up, surrounded by a big family. She loved cooking, and dreamed one day to run her own B&B. But life takes unexpected twists and turns. When her younger brother passed away, she found some comfort in mystery novels and in the writing assignments she got from her teachers in school. From those early essays and the feelings she put on paper to deal with her loss, Sam’s story came to life. After 13 years, this book of loss, pain and young love is finally ready for the public to enjoy.
