Bryony van der Merwe

Born in Namibia, Bryony van der Merwe has worked in the country’s publishing industry for 14 years and accumulated a wealth of experience in the field ranging from graphic design and layout through to establishing and running enterprises to publish magazines, newsletter and books. As a woman of words, she is passionate about reading, writing and publishing great books. She believes books create a respite from daily life, which explains her preference for novels, leisure reading and children’s books. Although the educational element does come through in especially the children’s books, Bryony insists that there be humour to ensure that learning remains informal and a pleasurable experience.
