Author Details

Where I Live
Queensland, Australia
Jenni Barnett was born and raised in South Australia. During her college education at Glenelg, the author developed an interest in archaeology and indigenous societies. Further to an extensive nursing career, Jennifer embarked on studies in traditional medicine with which she is still involved.

As a registered Traditional Western and Chinese Medicine practitioner, the author has done considerable research into early indigenous cultures. While enjoying creative writing and drawing, she decided to combine the two art forms and incorporate them in a traditional, pre-European setting.

During her youth, Jenni spent considerable time working in remote regions of Central Australia, where she learned about many aspects of Aboriginal culture. She developed a respect for certain Aboriginal people of the time, whom were still practising certain traditional ways of living, including bush foods and medicines as well as arts and crafts. The author is particularly fascinated by the ability of Australian indigenous bush-men to access a higher sense, or instinct. Their survival skills in remote regions of Australia where early pioneers often perished are emphasized in her writing.

As a semi-retired traditional medicine practitioner, Jenni resides with her husband in Queensland Coastal region, dividing her time between writing, sketching and her health practice. Along with her husband she has spent countless hours establishing a bird friendly environment by cultivating native plants and an eco-friendly environment.
