Australian author Dr Sarah Pye first visited Borneo in 2012, ostensibly to see orangutans in the wild. When she met Dr Wong Siew Te and asked what she could do to help sun bears, he replied “do what you do best”. Those five powerful words sparked a seven-years journey, a Doctor of Creative Arts degree, an enduring friendship, and the narrative nonfiction biography Saving Sun Bears. No stranger to publishing, Sarah was named Sunshine Coast Small Business Woman of the Year in 2010 for her guidebook, Kids Welcome to Queensland (2009).
