Glenda Lark was born in Western Australia to a farmer`s family. She attended public schools, graduated from the University of Western Australia, where she studied history and received her teaching degree. She married a scientist from Malaysia and moved to his homeland. As is customary among writers, I managed to try myself on many works. At various times in her life, she was a maid, librarian assistant, school teacher, university teacher, editor for medical correspondence courses, field birdwatcher and landscape designer. He currently lives in Malaysia. She has grown children. Active participant in the movement for the conservation of tropical forests. As the writer herself says, when she was a child, her family lived on a small farm at the foot of the Darling Ranges. Glenda grew up surrounded by vast wilderness and wilderness. From early childhood she fell in love with reading, and then quite naturally began to try to compose. The baby told everyone that she was going to become a writer, and at the age of ten she tried to write her first novel. Then it somehow happened that this desire subsided and did not give itself out for thirty years, and Glenda became a school teacher. At twenty-four, she and her Malay husband went to live in Southeast Asia. They had no money, but there was an abundance of enthusiasm. “I learned to tie a sarong, cook chilli food, speak an unfamiliar language, peel squid, make curry, eat politely using the fingers of one hand, get rid of cobras in the house and explore the rainforest ...” Lark recalls that time. Soon she had several children, she worked several jobs at once, and writing books seemed like a long-forgotten dream. But gradually she became interested in forest conservation and bird watching. She began to write articles for environmental magazines, so that in the end she could still be considered a real writer in some way. Lark is still actively involved with the press and is the author of many articles on the topic of nature, especially regarding the conservation of birds. Most of them have been published in Malaysian nature magazines. Some of these articles were previously available on her website. Lark also taught English to Malay University students, Japanese immigrants, children from a Korean kindergarten, and then, when her husband began working abroad on UN affairs, even Austrians in Vienna and Tunisians in North Africa. When they lived in Vienna, Glenda decided that she should finally get serious about literature. The first attempts were unsuccessful, but then her efforts brought good results. She sent her fantasy novel to an English literary agent, she read the manuscript, she liked it, and she agreed to represent the interests of Glenda. It was this book that became the first in the "Islands of Glory" trilogy. Meanwhile, they moved to Tunisia, where, sitting at the table, she could admire the ruins of Carthage. Glenda refreshed her high school French, teaching English to Tunisian engineering students who imagined Australia as the promised land. She also wrote a new novel, as yet unpublished, which takes place in a country described in the Judeo-Roman style. Then they returned to Malaysia. Glenda is deeply involved in conservation work, she specializes in bird fauna and travels a lot around the country. “I made my way through the mango swamps, I was chased by a tiger and attacked by a king cobra, I was caught off guard by a flash flood and bitten by many angry wasps. I survived a tropical storm in an open boat and was devoured alive by leeches, mosquitoes, ticks, sand fleas and other creatures that don`t even have a name. And would I go through it all again? Of course! In fact, I am still doing it. My love for the rainforest is limitless and I feel obligated to do everything to save it. ” The first book of the writer, "The Star of Hope" (1998), was published under the surname received in marriage - Noramli. This original fantasy novel is set in a fickle, ever-changing world. The book was well received by readers, received good reviews and even made it to the bestseller list of the UK branch of the online bookstore Amazon. The novel has been translated into Russian and German. Currently, Glenda Lark has already published 2 fantasy trilogies - "Islands of Glory", and the just completed cycle "The Mirage Makers". If there is free time, which does not happen so often, Glenda goes to watch birds, and if enough money accumulates (not as often as she would like), she goes to visit her daughters living in Scotland and Virginia, as well as her parents, all still living in Western Australia. Official site http://glendalarke.com/news/ Taken from the site http://fantlab.ru
