About the Author
Anna Makanda was born in Gweru, Zimbabwe, and raised in London, along with her older sister. Her father is Zimbabwean and her mother, Scottish. Growing up, Anna always dreamed of owning her own business. She started her career as an accountant but soon realised it was time to pursue her dreams. That was when she set up her own fitness brand. In her spare time, you will find her spending time with family and friends, chasing after her two very energetic children or writing a book or two! Sharmane Barrett was born and raised in London, along with her five sisters. Her father is Jamaican and her mother, Trinidadian-English. Growing up, Sharmane was encouraged to pursue a career as a lawyer but after completing her legal studies, she soon realised that law was not for her. She began working in legal recruitment, which gave her an opportunity to live in Singapore for almost four years. Sharmane's passions are travelling and boxing; although these days there is a lot less travelling to exotic destinations, and a lot more time in the gym.
