Mama is a true life story about growing up under difficult circumstances. Marijke is ten years old when her beloved Mama dies. The many changes in her life that ensue send her into turmoil. Hurt, angry, confused, she rides an emotional roller-coaster through adolescence trying to come to grips with the loss of her mother. Told with subtle humour, this little personal drama is a joy to read.

Marijke Lockwood was an auditor before she began writing for enjoyment after retiring from the workforce. Used to writing long legal and financial reports, she relished the idea of writing with emotion and from the heart.

Born in Amsterdam, the Netherland, in 1947, she was the fourth of twelve children. With her parents and (then) six sisters and two brothers she migrated to Tasmania, Australia, in 1960.

Married to George since 1967, they have two adult children, Paul and Fiona. Marijke and George are well travelled and visit the Netherlands regularly, where she enjoys absorbing the culture and history of her birth-country, and visiting her large extended family.
