Jenise Bates enjoys living a quiet life on a small parcel of land on the outskirts of a quaint country town in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. Her menagerie of dogs, cats, sheep, horses, kids and a patient partner keeps her busy.

Currently, she is working on two manuscripts that are worlds apart from each other and enjoys the diversity of what that brings. Publication of 'The Last' and having the climate issues brought to peoples attention would be huge.
