Florence Marilyn Mwandiitaani Mutambanengwe was born in Harare on the 1st of June 1942. She is the second child of nine children; six boys and three girls. She grew up on farm with her Grand-father a Methodist Reverend and Step-grand-mother until she was six and she went back to Harare to school. She did her primary education in Harare, went to boarding school for Grade 8, which they called Standard Six. Then she did her Secondary Education at Old Mutare Mission School.
She went back to Harare where she trained as a Nurse for three and half years. She left Nursing and went to Ghana where she was trained as a Secretary. Later she went to Canada where she did an Instructors Diploma at the University of British Columbia.
Professionally she worked as a Private Secretary for fifteen years; then worked as a Lecturer for nineteen years.
Though she was born in a Methodist Christian family, married to an Anglican Christian family; she became a Born Again Christian in 1986. She became a Deacon in the Ambassador’s for Christ Ministries International Church and was later ordained as an Elder. In this respect she attended and organised several workshops and conferences and has been to many different countries.
Her passion in all her books is for people to read the bible for themselves. And get the word directly from God and experience what God has in store for them. This is her fourth book, which goes to show that what the bible says: that with God anything is possible is true if you press on.
Florence has looked after several orphans and widows; and gets satisfaction in seeing how well the orphans have turned out. Most of them are doing exceedingly well.
