Shorney resides in a rural community in Berkshire, England. The self-published author has been writing for several years, and in her spare time she enjoys listening to old country and Irish music especially when writing.

I'm always thinking up a plot while waiting in a queue or on a bus.'

'Katambora Rising' is a beautiful tale that will delight readers while touching their hearts and awakening their senses.

'Katambora Rising' will make a really great, thoughtful gift for the holidays.' 'Katambora Rising' continues the story of the protagonist Colin Somerset's dedication to the Zambezi River Valley and its BaTonga people. As the sequel to the popular first book, 'The Sands of Katambora: A Safari Chronicle' (ISBN: 978-1494402761), 'Katambora Rising' shares how despite immense challenges, the main character remains steadfast in his determination to change his family's business from hunting to photographic safaris. 'Katambora Rising', describes Colin Somerset's quest to conserve the wilderness and wild creatures inhabiting the Zambezi Valley into the 1970s,' said Johnston. 'His trials and successes on this journey make for an exciting read, especially as Rhodesia descends into a brutal civil war.' The novel explores how regional military forces turn to elephant ivory and rhino horn poaching as a means to finance their efforts. 'Katambora Rising' reveals how herds are decimated and shipped to satisfy an insatiable demand from China. 'Katambora Rising' is available in both print and ebook format.
