About Gigi Sedlmayer

Gigi was born on 19 May 1944 in Potsdam, a suburb of Berlin in Germany.Her family escaped to the West just before the infamous wall went up, settling in Munich where Gigi studied architectural drafting and met Albert, marrying him December 1967. Her uncle was a writer, and encouraged her to write. Although she developed the love of words, she didn't start writing until later in life when her adopted twin girls were growing up and she was cleared of cancer and determined to get on with her life.Gigi lived in New Zealand for eighteen years then moved to Australia in 1992. Since then, her writing has flourished. Improving her English as she went, she entered many writing competitions, receiving back positive results.From her life experiences, the idea for TALON was created. Now she spends most of her time writing and researching new storylines.show more

Our customer reviews

In fact, this amazing author keeps surprising me with her innocent narrative, first-hand accounts, lively description and positive outlook on life amidst terrible circumstances. One thing that really struck me in her biography was her successful life struggle with cancer some time ago, which I profoundly admire, especially when reminiscing upon my late mother's destiny. I also deeply respect people who have seen a lot in their lives, travelled around the world and immersed themselves into various cultures. One could definitely learn so many things from their wisdom. In that respect, I was intrigued to know more about fossicking and I certainly have found some treasures for myself in Matica's adventures. Finally, I am sure you will find yours here as well.
