AN UNBELIEVABLE LIFE - Authorised Biography of Lynn Santer

Written by Sandra L. Rogers
Unbelievable life cover

She counts Hollywood superstars and senior politicians among her closest friends.

She’s walked with wild lions in Africa and through the corridors of power in  London’s Houses of Parliament.  

Her philanthropic contributions have helped children in Third World countries learn to read, and exposed ongoing brutal atrocities against endangered big game by a former US President.  

She’s piloted light aircraft, acted as special consultant to the British Government on an eleven billion pound per annum legislative reform, planned covert missions with ex Special Forces commandos into Africa, brought Saddam Hussein’s personal   pilot together with an ultra orthodox Israeli Rabbi in a peace initiative, dated  multi-millionaires, authored the authorised biography of Australia’s most private man, the original wild man and wildlife warrior Alby Mangels, dived with sharks, and survived the crazed assault of a “fatal attraction” psycho.  

Lynn Santer aka “Auntie Lynn” has indeed led an unbelievable life, so much so she rarely talks about it for fear people, well, wouldn’t believe her. 

Never before has she openly spoken about the intimate details, and exposed all the evidence to back up her stories, as she does now to close friend and fellow author, Sandra Rogers. 

This grippingly page-turning biography drips with celebrity, intrigue, triumph against Herculean odds, and achievements that truly defy belief.

……….Floyd Cowan – former Editor-in-Chief XL Magazine. 

A whirlwind of a life, and a woman! Lynn Santer takes on the world with  inspirational determination and passion.

……….Kirstine Lumb – Journalist, A Current Affair, Channel Nine

'This is an extraordinarily vivid portrait of a larger-than-life personality whose amazing adventures could probably fill several more volumes. Lynn Santer is an inspiration!'

……….Jenny Brown, New Idea

can you truly understand a person: 

For my special friend Lynn


Dedication from Lynn 

First and foremost to my parents whose strength, wisdom, dignity, grace and guidance have made me who I am today. To know my parents is to know me for I am, without question, a product in equal parts not only of their genetics but of their characters, for which I am humbly grateful. 

With eternal love to my sister, my nephews who are the true loves of my life, and my brother-in-law. 

With eternal devotion to all the animals who’ve touched my soul. 

To the closest, best, and most supportive friends a person could ever be blessed with: Liza Rothman nee Elizabeth Abrams aka Dizzy Lizzy, Mandy Marks wherever you are today, Darren Bracken, Deidre Anderson, Roselyn Poon, Barbara and Clive Fagenbaum, Neira Jones nee Benchabane, Mike Pilcher, Roland Slee, Juanita Carberry, Simon Lever, the beautiful Tippi Hedren, Shane Greaves, Sandra and Bruce Rogers, Clinton Smith, John and Joy Beacham, Gary Vernon Shugg, Marianne Capocci, Barry Crocker AM, Darren Russell, Rabbi Gurevitch, Ali Al-Wahabi, Robyn Wigmore, Charles Plumb, Peter Coyne, Sir John Butterfill MP, Roger Gale MP, Chris Daykin CB, my wonderful neighbours, Jean and Guy Thomas, all my amazing cousins – especially cousin Laurence, Lindsay Barrett, the inspirational Meryl Harrison, and Mike (my cousin the judge, “I don’t get out much”) Shelton. 

To those who have positively influenced and guided me: Malcolm Payne, Sir John Butterfill MP, Roger Gale MP, Chris Daykin CB, The Lord Archer of Weston-super-Mare, Alain Bois, Peter Coyne, the fabulous Rabbi Nir Gurevitch, Rabbi Eddie Jackson, Rabbi Jeremy Lawrence, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, and Narda Newman-Harris.

“May the footprints you leave behind show you walked in kindness to all living things.”

Foreword by Tippi Hedren 

Think of all the ideas, careers, the goals, the wishes, the desires you’ve had in your lifetime, or still have flitting around your brain. 

Perhaps you have wanted to travel to exotic countries, climb the highest mountain, and persevere in getting legislation passed regarding a major issue. 

Perhaps flying a plane, writing books about special people or a series of books for children that will let their imaginations fly with delight and teach them values and morals. 

Being friends with celebrities around the world, calling several tigers by name are just some of the accomplishments of Lynn Santer. 

You will be in awe and very likely a bit envious of this energetic, undefeatable, charming, loving woman. 

I’ve known Lynn to be a most prolific writer; creativity springs from her mind while her heavily-lashed eyes sparkle with enthusiasm and excitement. 

Few can keep up with Lynn; she’s a great friend and a woman to be admired.  

I do! 

With love to Lynn Santer, thank you for gracing us with your presence on this Planet Earth.
