Stephanie grew up loving both words and numbers.  As a child, she vociferously read anything and everything (from cereal boxes to encyclopedias to Enid Blyton), wrote short stories and performed mental sums to entertain herself.  Being the eldest in a family of 3, when it came to pursuing a degree, however, practicality won.  She studied engineering and for a time and even tried making that her career.

Eventually, she came to realise that her one true passion would always be for words– which is why her day job now requires her to wield that pen a lot.  She writes on the side too when she can. She loves her exercise time (some may claim it borders on obsession but she likes to think she’s being healthy), observing the many different characters that a gym attracts while getting her regular endorphin dose on.
