- Author BiographyGinnie Bedggood graduated in History from Queen Mary College, University of London, and post-graduated in Public and Social Administration from the LSE, Southampton University, and Brunel University. She worked as a probation officer in Soho, London, in the 1960s and spent seventeen years as a social work academic at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College, before moving to the Dominican Republic. She has been living in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic since 1992. She is the author of Quisqueya: Mad Dogs and English Couple, a narrative that charts the early adjustment to her new surroundings. Ilana Benady was born in Gibraltar, and studied and lived in the UK for more than fifteen years, graduating in Politics and Social Anthropology from the University of Kent at Canterbury. Her work at the Oxfam headquarters in Oxford took her to the Dominican Republic in 1996. This set off a chain of events that culminated in her moving there in 1999 and marrying Dominican photographer Pedro Guzman. After several years in the capital, Santo Domingo, they now live in Punta Cana on the east coast with their son Lucas. Ilana is the co-author of Aunt Clara's Dominican Cookbook and 100 Traditional Dominican Recipes.
