Kasthurie Govender was born in Durban, South Africa and raised in Lenasia, Johannesburg, where she completed her schooling education. At the age of nineteen she moved back to Durban to continue tertiary education. In that year, she married and later had two children who brought joy and laughter to her life.
Kasthurie was motivated to write her first book, “Little Rosy Lost Her Way”, out of a desire for all children to hold onto their innocence and purity. Her delightful children’s book was published first by Xlibris and later by Jabiru Publishing in 2014.
