Corinne Hofmann was born in 1960 of a French mother and a German father in Frauenfield in the Swiss canton of Thurgau, now lives in a villa on Lake Lugano with her teenage daughter. She had an international bestseller with The White Masai, an autobiographical account of her life in Kenya, which has since been translated into more than twenty languages and has spawned a film adaptation, seen by more than one million people when released in Germany in 2005. Her second book, Back from Africa described her attempt to start a new life back in Switzerland, and Reunion in Barsoli about her return to Kenya where husband and wife are reunited, after 14 years are still riding high on the bestseller lists.
