Author: Marilyn Honikman
Publication: THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIVE
Marilyn (Kirkwood) Honikman started writing when she was sixty. Before that she taught, and then worked for Ravan Press, David Philip, Weekly Mail/ Mail & Guardian and BigNews as a marketer, not a writer. For several years she ran sales and marketing workshops for independent newspaper publishers in Sudan, Beirut, Rwanda, North Vietnam and South Africa. Her books, The Mystery of the SS Waratah and the Avocado Tree (for children) and There Should Have Been Five (for young adults), were published by Tafelberg.
