About the Author

Tove Vine was born in Denmark into a poor family; she was child number 11 of 13 children. During her childhood there was a great deal of hardship, as it was often difficult for her parents to provide the necessities for the family. Due to the financial hardship, Tove had to leave school before her 15th birthday and make her own way in the world working as a maid and factory worker before obtaining a three-year apprenticeship in a large company and studied for a business college diploma part-time. At age nineteen she ventured to London, where she worked as an au pair for a wealthy Jewish family and met her future Australian husband while on holiday with the family on Jersey Island in the English Channel. Three years later she immigrated to Australia, where she married and had one daughter. The years in Australia were spent in Newcastle, Townsville and Brisbane working as a beauty consultant, a business owner and later as an accountant. Due to her lack of education, Tove never stopped studying in her spare time as a mature-aged student. In 2003 Tove (now divorced) decided to change her life completely, selling most of her possessions and moving to China to become an English teacher. She wanted to fulfil a childhood dream of becoming a teacher and also wanted to live in China. After one year working for an English training centre, Tove established her own school called "Miss Tove's English School." She is the author of TIC: This is China and MAD: Making a Difference in China
