Penny Estlin

Penny Estlin was born in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, but went with her family to South Africa at an early age to live by a lagoon called Green Shadows near Durban. Here she lived with her older brother and younger sister, in a magical world of golden beaches covered in tiny red crabs playing at dawn, goggle eyed chameleons hanging from the leaves of mango trees where lazy chocolate coloured dung beetles plodded along in the shadows beneath. She returned with her family to England in the early 1950s. Adulthood shook her out of this innocence and, during the next 60 years, Penny nursed at a Group Captain Cheshire home; joined the WRAF and became a PT Instructor; dabbled in the world of fashion design and production; developed and ran a large rest home; built a Victorian style restaurant in a cellar, in which she was the chef; moved to the Costa del Sol, Spain where she designed houses and apartment blocks, believed to be the first women to start a property development company in this area. In the late 80s she returned to England and wrote articles for several prestigious magazines, mostly on sailing, before moving to Lower Normandy in France.

More recently, Penny has retired, with her husband, to live near Alicante on the Costa Blanca where she has benn licensed as a lay minister in the Anglican Episcopal Church Spai. On 10 June 2007, Penny was called to write children’s adventure books to encourage and inspire hope rather than fear. Her works are based on biblical and historical facts.
