Although born in Australia, C. B. Dellhurst has spent most of her life in England. After the return of her parents after World War II, her brother eventually returned to Australia and now lives in Perth, Western Australia. The two have always stayed in touch on a regular basis, and modern technology has made doing so much easier. Dellhurst travels to Australia as often as she can, and her brother visits England often as well. Although Dellhurst lives in England, her heart will always be in Australia.
