about the author

Non-fiction writing has been a significant departure for the multi-talented Annie Boyd, whose career thus far has spanned civil engineering, university physics teaching, flute-playing, industrial design, web development, and computer programming.

Born in Perth, Western Australia, she returned to her home state in the year 2000. An interest in scuba diving was then revived, and it was a chance conversation at a maritime archeology meeting that sparked her interest in the mystery of S.S. Koombana.

A meticulous researcher and natural storyteller, Boyd brings a rare assurance to the printed page. Koombana Days is her first major published work. It is unlikely to be her last.
