Lydia Du Du Toit

Lydia Du Du Toit

Lydia and her husband, Francois du Toit live in South Africa. I think my imagination for story telling started in my early childhood. We lived like gypsies in a caravan and traveled criss cross our beautiful country wherever my Pappa’s work would take him. Long before any TV, and often so remote, that even the radio didn’t work, we invented stories and imagined places, yet to be discovered. At night around the campfires, or in bed, we were entertained with my Mamma’s amazing stories, taking us with her to Neverland. CS Lewis, as well as Elizabeth Goudge were some of my favorite authors. Raising our 4 children, I remember Francois often listening in and urging me to write these unfolding stories down one day! There is wonderful, hidden world, waiting to be explored in every child’s mind. I trust that Little Bear and The Mirror will unlock a most beautiful, safe place for all who read it. www.mirrorword.net
