Gwendolyn Taunton was born in Queensland (Australia) and raised in Christchurch (New Zealand). She relocated back to Australia following a series of destructive earthquakes in 2010-2011.

Gwendolyn has an extensive academic background in Philosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Information Technology. In 2009 she won the $10,000 Ashton Wylie Award for Literary Excellence for her first book Primordial Traditions, which was presented by the Mayor of Auckland. She has previously been employed as a graphic designer & web developer for the University of Canterbury, the Ministry of Research, Science, & Technology, and a government embassy in New Zealand. She has also assisted the University of Singapore with web design.

Gwendolyn’s natural habit is a spacious home in rural Australia, filled with books, animals, exotic plants, and religious antiquities. She is strongly pro-environment and is concerned with animal welfare.
