Rebecca Viljoen was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in 1953. She lives with her husband, and they have two grown up sons - who don’t live with them. (They live with three cats and a flock of mixed breed bantam-type chickens.) Home is Harare, Zimbabwe. She has always lived in Africa, where her heart is, though she has travelled to most of the other continents. Her training is in special needs teaching for dyslexic and ADD/ADHD students, and she is the founder of a small educational trust, which specialises in students who don’t fit comfortably into the ordinary school system. A few years ago, she met two young men in a car park, which somehow lead to her becoming a film producer. Although she knew nothing about film making, thirty years experience in theatre helped a little. Rebecca Viljoen is a nom de plume.
