Gayle was born and brought up in New Zealand, married in 1966 and had three children. The family moved to Australia in 1979. She now has six grown grandchildren. All her life she had Christmas in the summer that was always associated as cold with snow. For many years she wanted to write a book on Christmas in the sun. So that is how Santa Down Under came about.
"A rollicking good Christmas book for children all around the world to show that Christmas in some countries is not all about building snowmen and celebrating in front of warm fires. Great book for all to enjoy!" Angus, indiebook reviewer (NT)
