ABOUT MAHINA PERROT
Bilingual author, creative writer, communications specialist with a background in psychology, journalist and life coach
Hi everyone! My name is Mahina Perrot. I was raised on the exotic island of Tahiti where my imagination was nurtured from a young age by my beautiful and wild surroundings.
With a strong passion for, and desire to write about animals, I graduated with a degree in Communications with a Major in Journalism and soon became a wildlife journalist, which was one of my most cherished dreams.
Since then, I have been lucky enough to travel to many countries around the world including New Zealand, Canada, Costa Rica, Brazil and several African countries including South Africa, Botswana, Malawi, Zanzibar and Zambia.
During my travels my passion for wild animals kept on growing, and so did my desire to share what I had seen, experienced and lived with other people.
I’ve also always had a passion for children’s books and, as a kid, stories of faraway lands and the various characters’ adventures quickly instilled in me a longing for being able to provide other children with similar escapes to unique, wonderful and magical worlds.
Imagination truly is a wonderful gift, one we all have and that we should make the most of. To now be able to live my life creating new worlds and stories for everyone to enjoy is humbling and profoundly fulfilling!
My journey to becoming an author has not only made me more resilient and flexible, but it has also enabled me to learn a lot about myself as a person. It has been an exciting adventure and journey so far.
I love to find inspiration in everyday life and in all the experiences I’ve lived in my life. I sincerely hope to encourage children of all ages, but also adults, to become the heroes of their own adventures, and to make their dreams come true through the stories I write.
In all of us, there is a dreamer, a magician, an adventurer and a powerful creator. And books are unique doorways that can take us to other dimensions and to the most wonderful worlds.
Happy reading everyone!
