Charmain and Milan 

About Milan 

Milan Murray is a well-known actor and TV personality in South Africa.  She trained in Pretoria and New York, and has worked in television and theatre for 18 years. 

 As skrywer van die Murray & Me idioom reeks, beskryf Milan haar styl as ‘woordryk en speels’. “Ons het ‘n ryk taal en ek geniet dit om grondslagfase leerders met nuwe, kleurryke woorde te verras” sê sy.

 “Ek beleef die magie van stories opnuut deur my kinders - Steph(10) en Lua(8) – en ek gaan graag saam met hulle op reis deur die fantasie wêrelde van Rohald Dahl en Dr Suess. My wens is dat elke kind ‘n boek op sy bedkassie sal hê wat hy tot op sy oudag toe sal onthou. “

 

About Charmaine

Charmaine Nolte is an entrepreneur and the key-founder of the children’s book company Murray&Me. With over 10 years’ experience in online retail, her vision to produce quality children’s books led to the birth of the Murray&Me idiom series. 

 As ma van twee (Amélie -8 en Sebastiaan -6) benadruk sy die waarde van literatuur en taal-ontwikkeling in jong kinders en poog sy om stories te skep wat beide vermaaklik en opvoedkundig is.  “My kinders raak elke aand met ‘n boek op die voorkop aan die slaap! “ sê sy. “Hulle verslind stories.  Wat ‘n voorreg om sulke waardevolle produkte soos kinderboeke te kan ontwikkel en publiseer!”
